ABOUT MOBILE ART
Mobile Art has been providing art activities to seniors with disabilities in Austin since 2007. We believe that learning is a continuous lifelong process that plays a role in keeping mentally active and promoting personal development. Through carefully designed classes led by experienced teaching artists, participants experience a renewed sense of accomplishment and resulting self-esteem; a deeper understanding of their own past and present experience; and increased social interaction and friendship in a group setting.
During the Covid crisis we have shifted from in-person classes to a truly mobile platform, remote learning. We have now developed a series of instructional videos and mailable art kits for people to do at home.
To join a Mobile Art workshop, we encourage you to check out our classes calendar below, or sign up for our newsletter to receive workshop updates. Questions? Email Jerry Slayton.
Be Present series
Our “Be Present” series combines mindfulness practice with art practice. In this series we explore a multitude of art forms including writing, music, movement, and visual arts. Stay tuned to our classes calendar for upcoming “Be Present” workshops.
