the goal is to provide artists with an opportunity

A NOTE FROM THE MAKER:

One of the most influential educational experiences I have had was in applying for and receiving a grant for metal sculpture from the University of Vermont (project pictured above). The % for the Arts program aims to provide financial assistance for individuals of all ages and art practices to complete or participate in a range of projects or experiences.

The goal is to provide artists with an opportunity to complete a project, attend a class, have an experience, etc. that will help them make strides forward on their creative path.
