Vermont Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program

This program offers small grants (up to $2,000) to a community-recognized master artist in some traditional art-form who is interested in passing on that skill and knowledge to a less-experienced apprentice. Apprentices must reside in Vermont but may work with a master artist outside of Vermont if there is no one in-state with the traditional knowledge they are looking to cultivate.

Applications for the 2020-2021 cycle are due by 8/24/20 (extended to 9/7/20). You can access the application and more information on the Vermont Folklife Center website https://www.vermontfolklifecenter.org/traditional-arts-apprenticeship.

Teaching may have become complicated given social distancing requirements. Open and flexible to creative solutions in the interest of maintaining traditions and relationships.
