THE ARTS COMMISSION CURRENTLY OFFERS 2 APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAMS:

THE TRADITIONAL ARTS APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM

Based on their experience and commitment to the traditional art form they practice, masters and apprentices apply to work together in a one-on-one instructional setting. Passed down from one generation to the next, traditional arts are learned informally, usually through observation and example rather than through formal academic instruction. Preference is given to selecting apprentices who are members of the same ethnic, religious, occupational, tribal or familial group as the master artist. Click here for how to apply.

NEW! CRAFT APPRENTICESHIP PROGRAM, in collaboration with the Maine Crafts Association

The Maine Craft Association’s Craft Apprentice Program (MaineCAP) offers Maine-based master craft artists and apprentices the opportunity to learn, create, and celebrate. A seven month program, a lifetime of connections.
