The Society for Contemporary Craft has launched an exciting new
apprenticeship program for a recent B.A. or M.F.A. graduate who works in a craft medium. The apprentice will work full-time for SCC's education department and enjoy access to our studio facilities. This opportunity is ideal for emerging artists looking to gain professional experience in an educational setting while building their own body of work over the course of one year. The apprentice will receive a monthly stipend of $1,000 plus a $300 housing allowance each month. Responsibilities include:
- Acquire real-world experience in the day-to-day operations of an educational studio facility.
- Teach introductory studio courses and enhance personal teaching skills.
- Be mentored by, and assist nationally and internationally known visiting artist instructors.
- Learn about marketing, pricing, merchandising and how to sell work through retail galleries.
- Create new work while having free access to SCC's studios and equipment (the apprentice is expected to make work outside of business hours as well as document progress through postings on SCC's blog).
- Work 40 hours per week in The Studio, with one half day set aside weekly to work on personal projects during SCC's open hours.
- Monitor classes, and maintain studio facilities and equipment.
- Work with the public to engage visitors in the creative process through artist demonstrations.
- Exhibit new works in SCC's Studio Gallery.
