Through its programs, Arts on the Block offers area youth the opportunity to imagine, create and shape fulfilling futures while contributing to the quality of life in their communities. Collectively, AOB programs bring educational guidance, entrepreneurial training and a real-world experience in the arts that imparts transferable life skills. Individually, participants receive professional mentoring and personal attention that strengthens development and encourages achievement.
We are grateful to family, friends, and our creative network who believe in us and continue to help us to S–T–R–E–T–C–H and ADJUST as we settle into our new Silver Spring studio! The paint is still drying and online programming is in full effect, but we are already seeing small groups of young creatives coming into the studio for Covid-safe in-person art making. And there’s even more to come in 2022, so stay tuned!
