Meet Niki Little
Hi y'all, I am Niki Little—artist, teacher, magic-maker, bus driver, a wife, and mama of three kiddos, ages 9, 2, and 2 months. A couple of years ago, I decided to quit my job to focus more on bringing art to day cares and preschools around the DFW metroplex.
The Little Art Bus is built on my love of creative expression and my belief that art and creative expression should be accessible to everyone!
I started off by hauling bins of supplies around in the trunk of my car, which worked as a short term solution, but I knew I needed to think bigger.
Frequently, at the day cares I would see The Tumble Bus, an old school bus that had been turned into a mobile gymnastics and playtime space with padded floors and equipment for kiddos to hop on and go crazy. I thought to myself, "What if there was a bus like this, but for ART?"
My family and I looked, dreamed and talked about it for a while until one of them said, "That's genius! If you think you can build the business enough to pay for it, we'll give you a loan." So we agreed to take the leap! From there it went and continues to grow and grow!
