As an ArtWorks Youth Apprentice, you’ll elevate your skills beyond art-making.

ArtWorks is a local nonprofit with a mission to transform people and places through investments in creativity.

Elevate Your Future. 

ArtWorks Youth Apprentices and Teaching Artists work side-by-side to create public art and community impact projects. Projects can include painting, drawing, photography, design, sewing, and community engagement.

Beyond art making, our creative trainings and team experiences prepare Apprentices to elevate their skills in communication, collaboration, problem solving, creative thinking, and goal management. Additionally, through our program, Youth Apprentices develop lifelong friendships and bonds with their teammates.
