Mobile Art provides activities in three different areas: low-income nursing homes, Alzheimer respite programs and adult day programs. All of our programs are FREE as our goal is to reach those who otherwise would not have access to art lessons. We are a tax exempt, 501(c)3 organization.

The Mobile Art Program delivers art activities to seniors and adults with disabilities living in Austin, Texas. MAP provides people with ways to cope with what is happening in their lives. Art becomes the vehicle for expression, developing relationships, as well as for integrating experiences that may be difficult to understand. Our goals are to improve the lives of seniors and adults with disabilities by giving them an outlet for creative expression. We restore their self-esteem, build friendships where there was none and increase their cognitive skills leading to stabilization in overall health. We concentrate our efforts in low-income areas of the city.
Every Story Paints a Picture is an anthology of poems, essays and art by our seniors! $20 will cover the cost of one book for you - and one book for our seniors. The book is softbound with full color images. This is Volume I in what we hope is many more volumes to come!
