Twenty apprentices, from the Buffalo Public School system, participated in the Spring 2023 ArtWorks Session. Under the expert tutelage of two Teaching Artists, Emma Brittain and Lissette DeJesus, apprentices learned about ceramics and theatre, respectively. In addition to their time with the artists, apprentices participated in a professional development speaker series where they learned about financial literacy, mindfulness, creative writing and more.
Eight of the 20 apprentices also worked as interns with the following organizations: Houndstooth Costume Collective, Locust Street Art, VR Buffalo and 2nd Generation theatre; further deepening their experience into the arts. As public speaking is a main requirement of the ArtWorks program, all apprentices will present and speak to their creative processes during the final showcase to be held at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in May of 2023.
The ArtWorks Apprentices have been working diligently all semester and this Showcase is the culmination! We hope you'll join us as we share in their accomplishments and celebrate the transformative power of the arts!
