Application open now.

The Apprentice Program (TAP, formerly Pour Your ART Out) is a free, virtual summer intensive workshop for creative high school students in the DMV who have a passion for visual arts. This program, which has been running for 17 years, is usually held in person at AOB’s studio in Silver Spring. Apprentices are paid with an educational stipend or can earn Student Service Learning hours (SSL). As an apprentice, you will train in art, job, and life skills while meeting and collaborating with creative peers. Many apprentices return each year to participate in the summer and/or school year programs to advance in their training. After graduating high school, apprentices are eligible in the fall to apply for our Studio Crew team, where they can further their career development while completing AOB commissions. Sign up to join this fun, creative team!
