Teen apprenticeships

ABOUT TAP

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. 

Apprenticeship

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...

Entrepreneurship

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.

How to apply

SBAP accepts students through scholarship on a rolling basis throughout the year in the Fall, Winter and Summer.  We are currently have openings for a few new TAP students for the upcoming session starting in January 2019. 

TAP currently meets after school August thru May as well as summer workshops in July.
