GAP Teen Girls Apprenticeship 2020 Application
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 Winter, Spring and Summer 2020. Applications may be submitted online or print application materials may be dropped off in person, submitted by mail, or emailed to

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.
