All artists in the program are asked to choose challenging goals that will catapult their skills and knowledge as craft artists. The Master Artist Apprentice Program was created to help artists reach the next level of their professional development from a six-month one-on-one mentorship, not typically available in most learning environments.

Awarded apprentices receive an $1,900 stipend to work with their chosen master from December 1, 2023 to June 15, 2024.
