FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 16, 2015) — The deadline to apply for the Kentucky Arts Council’s Folk and Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Grant is Feb. 15. The grant provides up to $3,000 to a Kentucky master traditional artist to teach skills, practices and culture to a less experienced artist from the same community during the course of a year.
Applicants must be folk and traditional artists who are considered masters within their community and who have identified an apprentice from the same community who has potential to become a master. Both master and apprentice must be Kentucky residents.
“This program helps pair the right master with the right apprentice, ensuring the survival of their shared art form,” said Lori Meadows, arts council executive director. ”
