The Design Arts Apprenticeship program offers Lane County middle and high school students apprenticeship opportunities in various forms of design. Groups of 3-4 students are paired with a professional designer and work alongside them to understand the profession, explore specific ways to approach design, and begin creating on their own. In addition to learning a creative practice, students also explore the business aspects of a creative career, bolstering college and career readiness regardless of their chosen field.
Students can apply to participate virtually or in-person. In-person applicants will designate whether they’d like to be a part of a group that meets in Eugene/Springfield or Cottage Grove.
