Each 90-minute to two-hour therapeutic arts session costs $300 and includes two facilitators, art materials, planning, and transportation.

$10 – $1,000 directly impacts whether we can continue weekly program offerings each season. If you’d like to consider additional monetary gifts such as corporate matching or through estate planning, please contact us to support this process.

ArtVan is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that accepts tax-deductible donations. Donations via check are always welcome because there are zero processing fees.


We cycle through a variety of art mediums that we source in various ways. From bulk online orders to local donations. Thanks to Artist & Shop Owner, Leslie Beattie, the The Mix on Maine in Brunswick is a drop-off location! Due to limited storage, please connect us before dropping off donations. If we can’t use it immediately, it takes us time to pay it forward. 

Thanks to Mockingbird Bookshop at you can shop ArtVan journals year-round. Each journal is uniquely different and all proceeds support ArtVan programs. 

We’re currently looking for volunteers to source, fold, & bind journals. Sound fun? Give us a shout!

“Among the distribution is $7,500 for ArtVan’s Art Therapy of Sagadahoc Androscoggin, Cumberland and York counties … We’re honored to make bold investments in innovative programs that will help address the disproportionate burden of care work, as well as unprecedented increases in violence, substance use, unemployment and financial insecurity,” said Kimberly Crichton, executive director of the Maine Women’s Fund, in a news release.”​
