ArtVan is a free mobile arts therapy program based in Bath, Maine. We provide a creative and collaborative environment to encourage youth who have little or no arts access to fully express their imaginations, relationships and experiences within themselves, among their peers and across our communities. Our vision is for youth to freely imagine and create a world that is just and harmonious.
In our colorful, painted van, the ArtVan takes the arts to our core neighborhoods where youth may have the least amount of access to social services, after-school and summer activities. Our core neighborhoods are provided services free of charge.
Our staff of art therapists and professional artists engage these populations in the art-making process so they can explore and enrich lives.
