Art Works Apprenticeship Program
Art Works Summer Apprenticeship Program (Ages 14-19)
Began its inaugural year in June 2020, Arts Work is a paid apprenticeship opportunity that teaches youth apprentices ages 14-19 artistic, personal, and entrepreneurial skills in the context of creating salable artwork.
Arts Work targets youth at risk of delinquency and other problem behaviors, and economically disadvantaged youth.
Studies have shown that when other interventions fail, the arts frequently succeed by opening minds to new possibilities.
During this year round multi-discipline arts program, apprentices are encouraged to openly express themselves through their art-making while immersed in an affirming and nurturing environment. In addition to an on-site schedule, off-site excursions to museums, live performances and other arts adventures will be held.
For many Arts Work apprentices, the experiences will be a first, educational and enjoyable.
