Elevated Thought is excited to announce the 2022 I am Art. I am Change. Apprenticeship. This apprenticeship aims to provide artistic and financial opportunities for Merrimack Valley youth to explore and expand their creative skills. Apprentices will gain experience through working closely with our Creative Mentors to build their professional skills and artistic and social entrepreneurship.
We are offering apprenticeships in the following tracks:
● Visual Arts (including painting, illustration, mural production, mixed media...)
● Photography + Digital Design (manual, digital, film, video, graphic design...)
● Creative Writing (poetry, spoken word performance, freestyle, essay, journalism...)
Apprentices start off at $15/hr for 12 hours per week with opportunities for
