Mission Statement

To deliver art activities to seniors and disabled adults. Our goals are to foster self-awareness, develop social skills, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem. Our participants live in nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers or participate in the City of Austin's senior nutrition program.

Description

The Mobile Art Program takes art supplies into local nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and senior activity centers. We teach basic painting lessons, ceramic sculpture, still-life drawing, collage and mosaic projects. Activities are tailored to fit the capabilities of the participants. We try and avoid craft projects as we want the participants to express themselves. Craft projects tend to turn out similar instead of fine art which allows the artist to explore composition, subject matter and colors.
