Apprentice Academy is an art school for kids, youth, and adults founded by professional artist, Mardie Rees. We are located in Gig Harbor, Washington and serve Gig Harbor Peninsula, Key Peninsula, Tacoma, Port Orchard, Olalla, Bremerton, and occasionally those who are visiting from out of state! We offer summer art camps for kids as well as workshops and drawing classes during the school year.
We believe that challenging ourselves with artistic expression allows us to grow happier, healthier, and more successful. At Apprentice Academy, we build our curriculums around the fundamentals of sculpture, drawing, and painting while creating a safe and loving atmosphere to encourage all of our students, regardless of ability level. Take a class with us and you'll see what it feels like to awaken your passion.
