Studio Arts Apprenticeships

The Studio Arts Program offers after-school and summer Studio Arts Apprenticeships through a collaboration with After School Matters. The Studio Arts Apprenticeship is a job-skill building program for teens ages 14-18. Teens are challenged with a creative project led by an artist-instructor who will help teens develop skills, including: time management, group work, oral presentations, critical thinking, self and group critique, and more. Teens also learn vocabulary and how to use the elements and principles of art and design, which are of utmost importance for admission to any arts program or career. Studio Arts Apprenticeship projects include projects in Experimental-Painting, Print-Making, Mosaic-Making, Mural-Making, and others. The after-school apprenticeship program provides paid stipends (CASH) to teens who maintain good attendance and complete their project assignment.

The Studio Arts Apprenticeship Program provides teens with a safe community space to meet under the supervision of qualified and trained instructors and mentors. The program also provides access to a community gallery where they can showcase their individual and group projects. Our program meets DFSS/CPS standards and regulations. Teens can apply for an apprenticeship by completing and submitting the PRAA Registration Form and completing an interview with the instructor of the program.
