Teen Apprenticeships

Teens are encouraged to apply for a position as a Shelton Studio Apprentice. Student apprentices become part of the Art Museum’s education team and are trained to work alongside artist/teachers in Shelton Studio classes. Apprentices assist with art activities, lesson plans and studio set up and organization. If selected, the teen must commit to working at least 30 hours at the museum. Apprentices who fully complete the program will have the opportunity to spend 20 hours working in the Shelton Studio under the guidance of an artist/teacher on an approved art project of their choice. Materials and supplies will be provided by the art museum.

 

For more information or to sign up for an apprenticeship contact Heather Bender, Master Teacher, at (307) 766-3515 or hbender1@uwyo.edu.
