Friend and fellow artist, Susan Lomuto, has created a project on Kickstarter. Her project is the aptly titled “The Apprenticeship Project.”
The goal of this project is to raise $1,500.00 by November 28, 2011. The funds raised for this project will help Susan document what it means to be a working artist today by working as an apprentice to artists across the country.
Susan is no stranger to working as an artist apprentice. She did just that last fall when she traveled to Connecticut and Washington, D.C to work as an apprentice to a jewelry artist, a ceramic artist and a glass artist.
This time, however, Susan needs your assistance to make the Apprenticeship Project even bigger. Her initial apprenticeship experiences appeared as posts on her blog The Daily Art Muse. Now Susan’s goal is to capture this documentation in three books: one book on the life of an artist, one photo essay book, and one book on her life and what brought her to this project.
To hear about The Apprenticeship Project, you can listen to Susan describe it in her own words:
Now isn’t this something you might consider supporting?
Still not sure?
Click on this link to read more about The Apprenticeship Project. You can even ask questions. If you decide to make a donation, your credit card won’t be charged unless Susan reaches her goal of $1,500.00 by November 28, 2011. How cool is that?
You can donate as little as $5.00 or as much as $5,000.00. And you can choose a gift to receive based on the amount of your donation.
I wouldn’t blog about this if I didn’t believe in the project.
Full disclosure: I’m a backer of this project.
