The Painting Studio provides a solid foundation for all other artistic media, allowing youth to explore their identity and larger societal role in ways most have not previously experienced. Professional artist mentors teach youth the basics in drawing, painting, composition, design, and color theory. This training includes concepts such as drawing to scale, three-dimensional rendering on a two-dimensional surface, and the creation of perspective using vanishing points, building on the basic mathematics that teens learn in high school. This studio creates work for exhibition, commissioned paintings for both public spaces and private collections, interactive painting experiences and murals.


The vibrant talent of AFH’s young artists can enhance your environment. Our fine art collection is bold, exciting, and reflective of the new vision of culturally diverse Boston. From the realistic urban scenes to colorful, fun abstractions, AFH teens are capable of creating a variety of powerful commissioned images for both public spaces and private collections.

For home, office or community, an AFH- created mural will transform nondescript walls into architectural masterpieces and infuse corporate and community identi- ties with hip and powerful imagery.


We customize interactive art experiences for corporate and public events. Through our unique process, participants actively engage with AFH teens to experience making collaborative artworks that

give them the opportunity to express

themselves artistically. This experience

celebrates their corporate identity, values and teamwork through an entertaining and exciting arts activity.
