Real Apprentices

Teens for Real

Each year, Real Art Ways hires student apprentices, giving local high-schoolers the chance to learn from within the arts community and gain experience in a non-profit setting. During their time here, apprentices work with every staff member, taking on projects from all of our program areas including administration, marketing, visual arts, cinema and education.

The Real Apprentices program brings together students from diverse backgrounds for a year-round paid apprenticeship exploring arts at a non-profit organization.
