Abstract:The following paper argues for arts-based afterschool programming that focuses on the creation of highly crafted objects and entrepreneurial behaviors. The researcher's interests in this topic stem from a life-changing experience as an art director at a non-profit leadership camp. From this experience, questions and hypotheses have risen about the value of art lessons in contemporary society, and the researcher has assembled a compilation of studies and theories to further inform these questions. Research in the fields of art education, entrepreneurial education, afterschool programming, self-efficacy, and cultural capital provide grounding and applications for the lessons learned at the leadership camp.
