The Teen Apprenticeship Program (TAP) is a unique opportunity for 12 high school juniors and seniors to learn about contemporary art, MOCA, related careers in the arts and other topics and projects as they relate to visual art.
TAP students meet weekly at the museum beginning in late January, where they gain hands-on work experience by meeting and working directly with artists and museum professionals. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to engage with the museum that provides a diverse repertoire of skills to add to their future college and work submissions. TAP is a 12 week program that meets weekly each Thursday from 4:00 – 6:00pm.
We are now accepting applications for TAP 2017. Applications may be submitted online or print application materials may be dropped off in person, submitted by mail, or emailed toTruly@VirginiaMOCA.org before

In 2013 TAP Reception celebrated the unveiling of a MOCA Teen Apprenticeship Blog created by the students in the program. Each student was assigned a week to blog about and was encouraged to be as creative as they wanted to share their TAP experience.
Teen Apprentices are high school students from Hampton Roads, selected for the program by a partnership between MOCA staff and school teachers.
MOCA thanks the Mary Ann Elliott Foundation for its generous support of the Teen Apprenticeship Program.
