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 December 10th.

The Craft Apprenticeship Program is presented through a partnership with the Maine Arts Commission and the Maine Craft Association. It provides a 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.
