GAP - GIRLS apprenticeship PROJECT

ABOUT GAP

In the 2020-2021 year of programming we will be putting girls and young women at the center of a more "girl- centric" way of learning how to enhance their own lives and community through art while also becoming apprentices, leaders, activists, and future entrepreneurs.

The purpose of GAP Girls Apprenticeship Project is to empowHER and teach girls and young women ages 10-18 how to become “change makers” and “thought leaders” through apprenticeship in the arts. GAP currently offers studio experiences in pottery, sewing and design.
