The Art of Awesome!

Creative youth and emerging artists make public art, contribute to their communities, join the creative workforce, and design the future.

Are YOU ready to HELP AOB reach our $20,000 20th Anniversary Goal?

In April 2023, Arts on the Block will celebrate 20 years of community building, youth creative workforce development, making holistically inclusive spaces for emerging creatives to thrive, and the gracious support of our community, partners, funders, and YOU! Help us meet our Giving Tuesday goal November 29th in support of this amazing milestone!

Saturday, December 10th from 3pm to 7pm
in our downtown Silver Spring studio at
900 Wayne Avenue, Suite 1A

In this casual and fun workshop you’ll get an overview of relief printmaking, create and transfer your sketches onto blocks, carve, and print. This is a fun and accessible art technique, suitable for any level, age 12 and over (because of the use of sharp carving tools). Wear clothes you don’t mind possibly getting inked. We look forward to seeing you there!

See select stories from Arts on the Block showcasing how our creative youth are contributing to their communities today and designing their futures for tomorrow!
