With much planning, diligence, and sweat, the ArtPrenticeship team of four teaching artists and 10 apprentices is more than halfway through the summer internship program. They’ve made great strides over the past several weeks despite several days of rain and are nearly finished with the mural. Below you’ll see young creatives hard at work, as well as some of the incredible sponsors who popped in to see how things were going. These generous partners have agreed to supply a $600 stipend for each student at the conclusion of the program, helping Creative Waco reach its goal of paying a meaningful wage to every artist we work with — regardless of age.
You can see the mural-in-progress at 315 S. University Parks Drive, in the same shopping strip as the new Bicycle World. Keep up with our progress on Facebook or on Instagram at @ArtPrenticeship.
