“We worked with Arts on the Block during our renovation of the historic Waterfront Tower in Southwest DC. The collaboration helped showcase the work of talented underserved young people and demonstrated our company’s commitment to the local community. The process, the product and the feedback we’ve received have all exceeded our expectations!”

Lobby mural at Waterfront Tower condominium in DC created and installed by Arts on the Block apprentices.

Arts on the Block specializes in creating commissions. Not only do they generate income for our programs, but they also provide AOB Apprentice Artists with a tangible introduction to the creative economy. Apprentices master several disciplines through working in mosaic while learning transferable life and job skills: patience, teamwork, attention to detail, confidence, pride in accomplishment, and more. Working with clients, including schools, government agencies, and business owners, Apprentices also gain a strong sense community connectivity. They learn the value of public art and understand its potential impact.

In addition to large-scale installations, our talented young apprentices in the Pour Your ART Out program also create a variety of works for individual sale! Mirrors, vases, plates, boxes, panels, and signs in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and materials are produced, each exhibiting the exceptional talents of the AOB apprentices.
