“We hire youths for a variety of jobs: illustration, digital imaging, drawing, photography, of course painting, art therapy, sewing, pattern making, graphic design, and then they’re led by teaching artists,” Rothstein said. The program also hires the teaching artists, who guide the apprentices as they create the public art projects.
Appications are due this month, with interviews in March.

“We’re unique because we give creative youth an opportunity to not only make art, but get paid,” she said. “Considering that art and other programs like it are some of the first things cut when schools are slimming down their budgets, it’s important that these youth have an outlet for their creativity. It’s reinforced by the fact they can get paid for it.”
