“Tela” meaning “canvas” in Italian and “cloth” in Spanish, the TELAporter will bring our studio out to the streets. With 5 easels made of upcycled doors, we can easily host socially distant paint workshops. In just a few minutes, we can set up an art studio in any open space.


We would like to keep adding to the vehicle and create a way to bring workshops of all kinds directly to neighborhoods. When we are done, this van will be a spectacle, a curiosity, and a beacon to passers by to join in conversations and activities.
