The mission of the Fuego Apprenticeship Program is to advance the character of individuals and connect them to their potential through vocational training, mentorship and art practice.




Over the course of several months, Bill learned welding, woodworking, glass, and multi-media construction. 

His work was featured during the South Valley Studio Tour and at the Santa Fe Recycled Art Show. 

Bill continues to work at Fuego as a studio artist.

2018 funder:

Mccune charitable foundation

Thank you to McCune for funding the pilot of Fuego's Apprenticeship Program. We couldn't do this without you! 

2018 partner:

best chance

Best Chance helps formerly incarcerated men lead productive and rewarding lives while significantly reducing recidivism. They provide vital services, material support, referrals, information and training proven to reduce the stress of transitioning to “life on the outside.” 

2018 work project:

ADA-complaint ramp

Building a ramp and parking space was a permitting requirement. We love how it changes the studio space and resonates with Fuego's goal to:


 make art accessible to EVERYONE!
