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. Thier goals are to improve the lives of seniors and adults with disabilities by giving them an outlet for creative expression. They restore self-esteem, build friendships, and increase their cognitive skills leading to stabilization in overall health. They concentrate thier efforts in low-income areas of the city. Mobile Art provides activities in three different areas: low-income nursing homes, Alzheimer respite programs and adult day programs. All of thier programs are FREE as thier goal is to reach those who otherwise would not have access to art lessons. They are a tax exempt, 501(c)3 organization.
