Join us in celebrating this year’s Apprenticeship Program participants as they share skills, techniques, and lessons learned through their intensive study. By bringing an array of folk and traditional artists from across Texas together, this two-part virtual event is an opportunity not only to highlight each showcasing artist’s work but to inspire exchange and create connections between diverse artistic communities. Both parts will be held via Facebook Live, and the link for each part will be posted in the event discussion when it is live.
