We believe the simple act of creativity can change the world.

Whirled Tree Arts, L3C
 is a community arts organization based in Burlington, Vermont and Somerville, Massachusetts. Founded by art therapists, Carolyn Crotty and Melissa Clarke, Whirled Tree Arts is devoted to strengthening the roots of community by bringing people together across cultures, ages and backgrounds through creative arts experiences.

Our dream is to operate a mobile art studio that will bring art to the people.  Imagine! A cozy, creative space on wheels with everything in it to support people of all kinds in making art together! From cities to farms, we create community, we give space to art that helps us tell our stories, art that builds trust, peace and understanding, art that reminds us we are in this together. One world. United. Creatively.

We are on a mission to make the world a better place and with your help we believe we can do it!
