Help us ring in ArtVan's 18th year! With the way things are rolling these days, we want to make sure we spend time together outdoors.  In place of Artful Autumn, we are hosting Artful August!  We promise an afternoon full of art-making, local auction items, and wood-fired pizza at Flight Deck Brewing.

RSVP & Send Your Support Today!

Your participation and contributions make a huge impact on helping ArtVan continue to be a reliable presence in our neighborhoods. 

For each dollar donated to ArtVan, 72% goes directly to programming, with the remaining amount used to cover administrative support, insurances, and office space. It costs roughly $500/year for a youth to participate in our programming. This includes all costs related to program planning, staff, operations, keeping the wheels rolling on our van, and insurance.

Artful August not only celebrates our ArtVan community but is an awesome way to introduce our work to your friends, too. Feel free to pass along our invite with a brief summary of our mission!

ArtVan uses our colorful van to bring the arts directly to these youth, eliminating transportation and financial barriers to access out-of-school enrichment opportunities. Programs are provided at no cost to youth and their families and there is no limit to how many and who may participate.

This last week, we explored self-portraits with the theme of "Who Am I?". Some youth focused on their own representations while others chose landscapes, objects, and patterns. Through offering an intentional set of materials each week, self-expression is not outlined but open-minded!
