Arts Truck - Bringing the Arts to You
The Richmond Arts Centre makes innovative Arts programs accessible to children.
The Richmond Arts Centre Arts Truck is a mobile media and arts lab. Our mission is to educate, engage and inspire children within the community. We also aim to foster future interest in the fine arts through our programs by immersing participants in both digital media and traditional arts.
