After School Matters Store

Art in The Loop

Painters, sculptors and other visual artists and craftspeople get paid for creating their wares while teaching inner-city teens – who serve as apprentices – to do the same at this nonprofit entity. Artworks made by the teens, including paintings, illustrative prints, jewelry, mosaic tables, puppets and carved-wood walking sticks, are sold in the gallery here. Profits return to the organization.
