Grants of up to $4,000 to South Dakota master artists to train apprentice artists in the folk and traditional art forms. Funding is intended to support the continuation of the state’s traditional cultures and art forms by supporting master artists in teaching qualified apprentices. Each apprenticeship arrangement will include a master artist and one to three apprentices. Prospective master and apprentice artists must apply together.
This funding category is designed to:
- Recognize the achievements of South Dakota traditional artists.
- Provide support for traditional artists in passing on their skills and knowledge to committed apprentices.
- Strengthen the commitment of South Dakota traditional artists to their long-term work.
Examples of eligible art forms include, but are not limited to, cowboy saddlemaking, Native American and European style quilting, rawhide and buckskin work, quill work, traditional music and dance such as Czechoslovakian accordion music or pow wow songs and dances, basket weaving, wood carving, rug braiding, lace making and other needlework.

Grant amounts up to $4,000 will be awarded.
All work presented in the grant application, narrative, and included in the projected budget expenses must take place within the defined grant period (July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020).
Most apprenticeships in this program probably will include between 100 and 120 hours of guidance over a period of six to 12 months. However, we recognize that each art varies and expect the lengths of proposed apprenticeships to differ.
