This week, there will be three opportunities to attend free information sessions about the new TAI Apprenticeship Program. Starting in September 2017, up to six master artists will be selected to receive a $3,000 honorarium to teach their traditional art to an apprentice, passing on important traditional knowledge to the next generation within their community.
These brown bag lunch presentations are casual Q&A information sessions intended for artists who may wish to apply to the apprenticeship program or anyone interested more generally in the work of Traditional Arts Indiana. We welcome attendees to bring a lunch if they would like since the sessions at Crown Point and Indianapolis start at noon. The dates and start times of the events are listed below:
