MOBILE ART PROGRAM
January 13, 2011

I have had the pleasure of working with founder Theresa and her group of volunteers over the last year and have enjoyed every minute of it.





Mobile Arts brings art education to older adults who may not otherwise have the opportunity to pursue them. Through a variety of media and themes, participants in Mobile Arts are able to express themselves creatively, engage socially in a relaxed setting, and challenge themselves while learning new skills.
