What is an ArtWorks Youth Apprenticeship?

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

ArtWorks Youth Apprentices and Teaching Artists work side-by-side to create public art and community impact projects. Projects can include (but are not limited to) painting, drawing, photography, design, sewing, and community engagement.

Beyond art making, our creative professional development training and team experiences prepare Youth Apprentices to elevate their skills in communication, collaboration, problem-solving, creative thinking, and goal management. (Read more about our 2019 Launch Week.) Through our program, Youth Apprentices develop lifelong friendships and bonds with their teammates.
