High School Apprentice Training Program

The High School Apprentice Training Program (HSATP) is an after-school art program for students interested in developing new tools for artistic expression and self-empowerment in a professional museum and studio environment. During fall and spring twelve-week sessions, apprentices have the unique opportunity to design their own hand-screen-printed textiles with an emphasis on building entrepreneurial and collaborative skills. The summer eight-week session offers an opportunity for apprentices to gain a deeper understanding of museum operations, including receiving training in public speaking, giving tours, and visiting local art institutions.

HSATP offers exceptional art education for teenagers from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds, with the specific goal of providing participants with opportunities unavailable in their schools. FWM's objective is to complement school resources and improve art education for high school students in the Philadelphia region.

The application process includes an interview with the Museum Education Manager, to which each student must bring at least five samples of their artwork, such as: drawings, a portfolio, or journal of recent artworks. To apply, please complete an online application form and email to:
highschoolapprentice@fabricworkshopandmuseum.org.
