apply for Metro Arts

Metro Arts brings together artistically talented young adults and provides them with productive, creative, paid apprenticeships in the arts. The program takes place over five weeks in June and July and is open to any student age 15-21 residing in the Quad City area. Participants will work on group projects under the supervision of a professional artist. Participants learn the artistic techniques and applications of their particular genre while developing personally and professionally.

 

Metro Arts apprentices are selected through an application and interview process.

Application deadline: March 1, 2019.

Note: You will not be able to save and return to your work, or edit it after it has been submitted.
