The Siskiyou Arts Bus Project is a major arts and education component of the Siskiyou Arts Council. The program involves a mobile art studio (bus) and a diverse offering of programs, held both on and off the bus. The bus and related programs are county-wide projects offering exploratory art for youth from preschool through high school age who may otherwise have little or no exposure to the arts.
