Art @ Work is a five-week mural artist apprenticeship program for Baltimore City youth enrolled in the city’s YouthWorks program. Dozens of young people ages 14-21 are hired each summer to work side by side with professional artists to create highly visible murals and mosaics throughout their neighborhood.
The goal of Art @ Work is to introduce youth to career opportunities in the arts, offer gainful employment in a positive learning environment and to provide youth with the tools to express themselves through the arts, all while beautifying their community. Since its launch in 2015, Art @ Work has produced 19 indoor and outdoor public art projects in the Sandtown and Upton communities, employing over 150 Baltimore City youth.
