Art Bus

Art Bus

The Art Bus is a retrofitted school bus classroom that “pops-up” outdoors at local schools and community events to increase access to hands-on creative experiences.


The Art Bus is currently offering pilot programming free-of-cost to elementary schools within 25 miles of the Center that receive schoolwide Title I funding.

We are proud to support the creativity of students at our partnering schools: M.E. Small Elementary, Hyannis West Elementary, and Barnstable United Elementary School


The Art Bus offers seasonal family days at the Cotuit Center for the Arts and in local community centers. Family Days provide kids and their grownups the opportunity to connect with creative prompts and art materials.


To ensure the long-term financial sustainability of Art Bus initiatives and provide access to those traditionally underserved by arts-based programs, we seek to vary and expand our support from a variety of granting organizations, private donors, community foundations, and local corporations.
