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.
We are honored to announce that the The Alzheimer's Foundation of America has presented the Mobile Art Program with a grant in the amount of $5,000 to support our programs that improve the lives of those in our community living with Alzheimer's. AFA unites more than 1,700 member organizations from coast-to-coast that are dedicated to meeting the educational, social, emotional and practical needs of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, and their caregivers and families. Under AFA's umbrella, these organizations collaborate on education, resources, best practices and advocacy —all resulting in better care for people affected by the disease. AFA believes that by raising awareness of the disease and educating healthcare professionals and the public at large, we will:
Help remove the fear and denial surrounding Alzheimer’s disease and related illnesses
Lead to early detection and proper treatment
Prompt greater utilization of community resources
Ultimately improve quality of life

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 self-esteem, build friendships, and increase their cognitive skills leading to stabilization in overall health. We concentrate our efforts in low-income areas of the city.
