Attention high school students! An Artist Mentorship Grant Writing Workshop is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 20. Students in grades 9, 10 and 11 who are attending public, private or home schools and living in the LRAC region, are invited to apply for an arts study award worth over $500.
A number of students in the region will be selected to study their chosen art form with a professional artist, or attend a workshop or summer camp next summer. The goal of this program is to enhance the student's artistic creativity and skill, as well as personal growth.
Guidelines and applications are available at http://www.lracgrants.org .
