GAP Teen Girls Apprenticeship 2020 Application
- SEPT 11 2020 - MAY 14 2021

In the 2020-2021 year of programming we will be putting girls and young women at the center of a more "girl- centric" way of learning how to enhance their own lives and community through art while also becoming apprentices, leaders, activists, and future entrepreneurs. The purpose of GAP Girls Apprenticeship Project is to empowHER and teach girls and young women ages 10-18 how to become “change makers” and “thought leaders” through apprenticeship in the arts. GAP currently offers studio experiences in pottery, sewing and design as well as opportunities to participate in "Girls Club" and "Pop-Up Shop Summer Activities"

We are now accepting applications for Summer-Fall 2020 & Winter-Spring 2021. Applications may be submitted online or print application materials may be dropped off or emailed to
Spaces in this program will fill up fast, sign up soon! You can edit your responses after the form is filled out.

Girls meet at The Pottery Studio or the Upstairs Sewing & Design Studio where they gain hands-on work experience by meeting and working directly with resident and visiting artists. GAP is a year-round program that meets weekly during the school year. Students should plan to attend every week the program is in session. If a student has 3 unexcused absences they may be dismissed from the program.

The expectation is that each Teen Apprentice will work one Saturday or Sunday each season: Twice in the Fall, Once in the Winter & Once in the Spring, times: noon-5pm. Students should bring a sack lunch and water bottle when volunteering.

Age Requirement
10-18 / 4th-12th grade

Full Scholarship - FREE
We aim to keep GAP Girls Apprenticeship Programs FREE for all participants. We do ask each family to consider if they can contribute by making a monthly, quarterly or yearly donation. GAP is only partially funded through grants and as an organization we are responsible for asking for donations and FUNdraising. Fundraising and donations are especially important during these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 crisis.

In the fall students will get acquainted with Pottery or Sewing & Design learning new techniques and making new creations to be featured in Spring Art Show or in their summer Pop-Up Shops.

Spring Focus: In the Spring Teens will shift focus to learning about how to run their own small business and design their own pop-up shop suitcases. Continuing students already have pop-up shops and will work on expanding their product line etc.

Program Requirements: (1) Teens must attend class once a week at their regularly schedule class time. (2) Teens must volunteer one Saturday each season: Twice in the Fall, Once in the Winter & Once in the Spring 10am-2 or 3pm. Students should bring a sack lunch and water bottle when volunteering. Once your child has been accepted to the program we will send a separate form to fill out for volunteer Saturday work days. (3) Make-up any missed class time by coming to another class (4) Attend mandatory events and workdays (see below) (5) Come to class ready to work and focus (6) Keep phones and devices put away during class time
