Apply by December 10th for the Craft Apprentice Program 2020

The Maine Craft Association’s Craft Apprentice Program (CAP) offers Maine-based master craft artists and apprentices the opportunity to learn, create, and connect.

Applications will be accepted online through the Grant Management System on the Maine Arts Commission site until December 10th.

The Craft Apprenticeship Program is presented through a partnership with the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Craft Association. It is seven-month customized educational opportunity for apprentices who demonstrate a commitment to further their abilities as professional craft artists. This is accomplished through a significant relationship with a master artist.

Both master and apprentice receive an honorarium: $3,000 to the master for their time and expertise and $1,000 to the apprentice to purchase supplies and tools needed specific to this apprenticeship.
