The story behind The Magic Art Bus
The Ravens bus was in Maryland so I didn’t really have to go too far to pick it up. After weeks of negotiating, I purchased the bus. Little did I know that it needed A LOT of work!
After a couple of many high-end estimates, I came across a gentleman that was willing to take on the job for a small fee, done!
Mind you, I am using my personal money and have no bank loans so far. THANK YOU universe for putting people along the way that are willing to help and suggest amazing ideas.
I have learned so much along the way. I knew that I made the right decision by purchasing a bus versus committing to a 3-5 year lease for an art studio which ultimately is my goal. I can not wait to see the end results and see children’s faces when they step inside the bus.
We’re dedicated to bringing affordable, high-quality art education for kids and adults to our communities, and we offer a wide range of open-ended art materials to encourage creativity and experimentation. Whether you’re looking to book a class, workshop, or event, The Magic Art Bus is here to help you discover the joy of process art and the transformative power of creativity.
The founder and owner
Hi, I’m Nancy Lobo, founder and owner of The Magic Art Bus! I was born in Houston, Texas, raised in Maryland and now I live in Alexandria Virginia with my fiancé, our two magical girls, Jenesis & Nova Stella (who inspire me to go for my dreams), and our three fur babies. Education and children are a passion of mine.
I worked in a preschool setting for many years and obtained an Ed.M. from George Mason University. Although I loved my career as a Director at Alexandria Preschool, I knew I wanted something of my own.
