The Dewitt Apprenticeship at The MAC
“Rural Illinois: Past to Future”
young adults, ages 14-18
By the end of this six-week program, students will complete at least one piece of art that fits the theme, “Rural Illinois: Past to Future,” inspired by the art of Roger Dewitt, which they will donate to the Dewitt Foundation for auction on November 9, 2019.
Over four days, during the first week of the program, students will work with four different practicing artists, each one specializing in a different artistic medium: clay, stained glass, painting, or mixed media. Students will then choose one of those four artists/media to work with once per week for the remaining five weeks of the program.
Each student will be compensated $100 for successful completion of the apprentice program. Students must attend the full four days of artist sampling the first week, as well as five more weekly classes to receive compensation. Students must have a final auctionable piece to donate to the foundation.
Applications must be received by Tuesday, June 4th, 2019.
Applicants will receive confirmation of acceptance by Tuesday, June 18th, 2019.
First week of class: Tuesday, June 25 - Friday, June 28. The following five weeks will be determined by the instructor.
