The Apprentice Program (TAP, formerly Pour Your ART Out) is a free workshop for creative high school students in the DMV who have a passion for visual arts. This program, which began back in 2003, is held in person at AOB’s professional working art studio in Silver Spring. Apprentices are either paid 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 public art commissions for high profile clients.
