Maine Crafts Apprenticeship Program


In March of 2016 Linda Perrin was chosen as a Master/Mentor in the Crafts Apprenticeship Program by the Maine Crafts Association, and Maine Arts Commission

This statewide apprentice program for contemporary craft practitioners offers concentrated peer-to-peer learning experiences for apprentices who demonstrate a commitment to further their abilities as specialized craft practitioners through this opportunity to foster a significant relationship with a master artist. The program celebrates the role of the master/apprentice relationship as a way to generate creative entrepreneurship through the cultural sector. And Linda Perrin of Atlantic Art Glass is happy to be recognized for accomplishemnts to this end in her long career as a glass artist in the state of Maine. 

Jacquelyn Jenson a recent graduate of College of the Atlantic was chosen as Linda's apprentice. 
To close the program, all artists participate in an exhibition at a highly attended venue. Maine Magazine is the 2016 exclusive magazine sponsor of the program’s inaugural exhibition Masters & Apprentices: Work from Maine’s Craft Apprentice Program, on view at LAArts October 6-November 7, 2016 and featuring work created by master and apprentice artists in 2016. The public is invited to an opening reception for the exhibition from 4-7pm on October 6.
