It seems like I just did this. Bryan has worked out very well, however his work load at his full time job seems to be getting a little hectic and he has notified me that he is not sure how dependable he can be. He will still be coming in, but it may be a good idea to begin the search again. If you are interested or you know of someone who might be interested in being an apprentice in an art studio, have them contact me. The complete description is listed below. I have a couple of interviews already, however I have a huge project that I bid on. If it comes through we may need a few people in here.
Houston Sculptor is seeking fall/winter apprentice.
This job consists of working in a real art studio with a master sculptor as well as in the foundry for bronze casting when necessary. Work is figurative. Your duties would include anything from smoothing clay, helping to make armatures for life size sculpture, assisting artist with working waxes for the bronze process and clean up. The work can get dirty. Desire for art and a summer commitment is the only prerequisite.
This is not a paying internship however there are sometimes bonuses involved and the learning experience and exposure are invaluable. The artist’s studio is located just north of the 610 loop off of shepherd. Hours are flexible, we can work around your schedule if you can committed to at least 5-10 hours a week. Upon completion of the summer the artist would be happy to write a letter of recommendation for the student for college or job.
