Grants of up to $3,000 to Idaho individual master artists to work with apprentice artists for the purpose of sharing and teaching a traditional or folk art form. Applicants are encouraged to schedule a draft review at least three weeks prior to the deadline. Traditional and folk arts are commonly learned by observation and practice within the family, tribe, occupational, or other group.

TAAP strongly encourages applications from masters of traditional art forms practiced by only a few in their community, and requires applicants share the same cultural heritage. TAAP will support multiple apprentices if required by the art form. This must be clearly explained in the application.

A master artist has received peer recognition for achieving the highest level of artistry according to community standards. An apprentice needs to have some background in the art form, demonstrate a willingness to learn from the master, and indicate a commitment to practicing the art form after the apprenticeship has been completed.

Up to $3,000

Length of the apprenticeships must range from four to ten months.

Applicant Eligibility:

-Must be at least 18 years old. Apprentices may be younger than 18 if tradition requires.

-Must be a United States citizen, legal resident, or refugee.

-Must have been a resident of Idaho for at least one year. Masters may live in states or foreign provinces bordering Idaho because some of Idaho's ethnic and cultural groups extend into those areas.

-Master and apprentice share a common cultural tradition.

-Must have submitted all final reports for past commission grants.

Application Instructions:

Applicants are strongly encouraged to make an appointment for courtesy review at least three weeks before an application deadline. Staff will review your application and offer suggestions for improvement. This process does not guarantee funding, but may strengthen the proposal.

The deadline for receipt of applications is January 31, 2017, 5:00 PM.
