Apprenticeship awards of up to $3,500 to Wisconsin artists to learn traditional art forms from master artists. First-time applicants must notify the funding source of their intent to apply prior to submitting an application. Funding may be used to compensate the instructing artist for his or her time and remaining funds may be used for supplies, materials, or travel. Preference will be given to apprentices who are from the same cultural community as the instructing artist.
Folk Arts Apprenticeships are designed to strengthen and preserve Wisconsin's diverse cultural traditions by supporting direct passage of knowledge and skills embedded in traditional arts. Skilled and experienced folk or traditional artists teach committed and talented apprentices of their choosing. The instructing master artist should be locally or regionally respected in a traditional art form important to a cultural community in Wisconsin.
Priority is given to apprenticeships that will help ensure the continuation of a traditional art form in a community where it has value and a traditional place. Successful apprenticeships very often are based upon close and frequent personal contact; the work plan should reflect this. The apprenticeship requires the master artist and apprentice to do a public presentation in their community at the end of the working year. The presentation should be appropriate to the art form, such as a small exhibit, a performance, or a workshop/demonstration in a local community setting.
