Folk and Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Apprenticeships are grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (PCA) which support the learning of folk and traditional arts, defined as those artistic traditions characteristic of specific ethnic, religious, linguistic, occupational, or regional groups. These grants are administered for the PCA by FolkArtPA at Jump Street in Harrisburg, PA. Each grant award provides funding to a partnership between a master artist and a qualified apprentice, enabling them to work together in a year-long learning experience to allow for in-depth learning that encompasses the context of the culture and the development of a mentoring relationship as well as the acquisition of techniques and artistry.
