The mission of Art From the Streets is to provide a safe and encouraging environment in which the positive spirit and creativity of homeless and formerly homeless people is nurtured through artistic expression, and to provide them with a source of pride and income through the sale of their work. Art from the Streets is an art studio for homeless and formerly homeless artists. The art is for sale online and at the annual Show and Sell art show. Those that wish to volunteer to give back to the Austin community can sign up online. AFTS is based out of Austin, Tx.
