The Art Express

Pepper found this sweet art site in the Newspaper, saved it, excited to show me.
The Art Express is a very trendy idea, consisting of a renovated school bus that arrives at your home, loads in the partiers (age 3-10) who participate in an instructional art project, taking home their work, leaving all the mess behind. The bus seats twelve kids and is two hundred and fifty an hour. Personally I think it's a wonderful idea! Apparently there has been some inquiry about using it for girls night out, unfortunately it is child oriented with bench seats. So Michael Bray and his wife are toying with the idea of starting up a few more buses for women and teens.

Just over twenty dollars an hour per child is not unreasonable, but would definitely limit who could afford the luxury of this bus. No doubt it’s not much different than renting a blow up castle for the day. It’s an hour long session, I wonder just how many kids actually complete their project in that limited time. Yet on the other hand some kids have a shorter attention span. For the most part, I think it’s an innovative idea, fraught with all kinds of room to grow!

What a great idea, Sherrie - and what a fun job those people have! (Though I wouldn't want to have to clean the bus up afterward!)

LOL sherrie.. I love the idea of the bus. I immediately thought about SunnyBus and how many kids were dancing about in her at the Easter Seals rally I took her too last year..
My friend has a VW BUS coated in blackboard chalk and at each campout the kids have a blast decorating it!!
Then, just hose it down for next time!
