Meet the six new apprentices who will participate in a year-long instructor training at Vesterheim’s Folk Art School!
This new initiative, funded through an anonymous grant, gives artists a chance to attend Vesterheim classes and meet up with established faculty to witness different teaching styles and experience the community and facilities of Vesterheim’s Folk Art School.
“One of our goals is to potentially cultivate new instructors, but most importantly we are supporting emerging folk artists who are passionate about keeping these folk-art traditions alive. Through the program, they hope to continue their learning and find their own individual voices and teaching styles along the way,” Lea Lovelace, Vesterheim’s Director of Folk Art Education, says.
Find out about their kick-off weekend here.
