Program Information:

AFH’s central program, the Arts Micro-Enterprise, is a paid apprenticeship and leadership program employing inner-city teens. Youth are partnered in small groups with professional artists, designers and young artist mentors to create, market and sell fine art and design services. With fully equipped, staffed studios in Painting/Murals, Sculpture/Industrial Design, Screen-Printing, Graphic Design, Digital Media, and Photography/Web Design, youth and mentors collaborate on creative projects, many specifically commissioned by clients. In the process, young artists develop entrepreneurial skills as they participate in planning, product development, outreach and marketing of projects. The paid apprentices meet during their out-of-school time: Tuesday through Thursday from 3:00-6:00PM during the school year, and Monday through Friday from 12:00-5:30PM during the summer.
