Entrepreneurship

Every young person is motivated by money and through our TAP Program we teach young people how to turn their art-making skills  into cash.  Students work together to make their own products for a collaborative shop that is on display in our gallery as well as individual "mobile" pop-up shop suitcases. Students work together to create budgets and earn money.
