Spring Apprenticeship Program

Spring program operates from September - December, after school, and on the weekends, for five hours per week.

ArtWorks provides learn-while-you-earn training through apprenticeships in the arts for youth, age 14-19. Apprentices learn artistic skills, art education, and more while they work alongside professional teaching artists, who offer guidance, instruction, and supervision. Activities such as client meetings, open house events, and public sales give the apprentices a chance to practice presentation and public speaking skills. Fiscal literacy training includes: opening a bank account, keeping a budget, and responsible credit development. With our teaching partners, we instruct Apprentices in professional communication skills, nutrition, good health, and personal safety. Finally, we educate Apprentices about the ecological impact of everyday items, including the responsible use, upcycling, and repurposing of materials to reduce our carbon footprint.

Population(s) Served

Summer Apprenticeships are in June and July, Monday through Friday, for five hours a day, with a lunch break.
