ARC Art Scholarships

Hey folks! The beginning of March is when most scholarship applications are due at ARC, but we have a few different scholarships with different requirements in the Art department, so I thought I’d list them out here for you. The Kingsley, Gary Pruner, and Maddock Figure Scholarships require a portfolio submission later in March as well, but I have not added that link because this blog is available to anyone on the web… please see your art teacher for that link–I sent it to every art teacher at arc. 

ARC WorldStoke Clay Scholarship (Apply now)

WorldStoke is an international symposium of woodfiring, artist demonstrations, and discussions to address social equities in ceramic art.  It is an interactive four-day event for clay artists and enthusiasts to enjoy and lead in the communication and social actions concerning ceramic art today. The event is in and around Placer County.

The scholarship part?
