Art from the Streets is a free & open studio in austin, TX that serves the homeless community.


Art from the Streets was founded in 1991 to provide a safe and encouraging space for the positive spirit of artistic expression of those who need it most. For the past 23 years AFTS has been a place for creating amazing work while providing insight into the human beings who brought them to life.

Original pieces are sold here and at our annual Show & Sale with proceeds going to the artists. Get a beautiful work of art for your home or donate to the art studio
 to help give our artists the hope of a new beginning.
