Are you a high school student or do you know one who is interested in being involved with New Urban Arts this summer? New Urban Arts is accepting applications for 36 paid summer apprenticeships in the arts. Youth receive $400 stipends for their participation or a college scholarship. Lunch, snacks and Riptiks are provided to students at no cost! For students who can’t participate in one of the paid apprenticeship programs, we also have an open studio program. Applications are due Tuesday, June 10, so download one now!
