TAP Teen Apprenticeships is an immersive arts program for 6th-12th grade. Students learn how to think and work like an artist and entrepreneur while engaging with a teaching artist that provides a diverse repertoire of skills to add to their future high school, college and work submissions. Apprenticeships are offered for Pottery and Fashion Design.
TAP Teen Apprenticeships give teens hands-on experience to apply skills immediately through art-making, collaboration, community building, volunteering and entrepreneurship. Ultimately we seek to provide a safe place for teens to express themselves while building a diverse portfolio of skills to succeed in high school, college, and beyond...
Every young person is motivated by money and through our TAP Program we teach young people how to turn their art-making skills into cash. Students work together to make their own products for a collaborative shop that is on display in our gallery as well as individual "mobile" pop-up shop suitcases. Students work together to create budgets and earn money.
