After School


After School is a FREE art program for students grades 2-6 living in Pittsburgh’s Northside neighborhoods and attending Pittsburgh King, Pittsburgh ATA, or Propel Northside.

Join our Mattress Factory Teaching Artists as they lead you on creative adventures inspired by our exhibiting artists from around the world and around the corner.  

Every Wednesday from 4-6 PM during the school year, students will try new techniques, experiment with materials, and engage in conversation about artists, community, and ideas. After School offers the opportunity for students to think creatively, express themselves through artmaking projects, enjoy snacks, grow community, and seek homework help. 

Contact education@mattress.org to join!
