About us

After School Matters is proud to showcase the incredible artistic talents of Chicago’s teens!

In their programs, our teens are conceptualizing, painting, designing, sewing, building, welding, and even inventing a wide variety of unique artistic products that you will not find anywhere else.

Many of these one-of-a-kind creations are available for purchase at the After School Matters Gift Shop (66 East Randolph Street in downtown Chicago). We are also pleased to offer the ability for you to commission a work by a teen or a program. All proceeds from sales and commissions go back to supporting After School Matters programs and our talented teens.
