Scholarship Information

This annual scholarship provides one Workman Arts member with tuition money (up to $1000 per year) to attend additional artistic training outside of Workman Arts training courses.

To be eligible, the Workman Arts member must be nominated by a Workman Arts member, staff member or instructor as someone who greatly contributes to the Workman Arts community at large and who would like to expand their artistic training.

Tuition costs may cover additional courses at local artist-run centres, art schools or studios, special workshops or intensives and/or taking regular workshops with a teacher or experienced artist.

How to Nominate a member

Deadline July 1

Email Jessica Jang with the name of the member you are nominating and 100 words (maximum) about how they contribute to the Workman Arts community.

If the nominee is selected, Workman Arts will contact them and provide any assistance they require to select and register for the additional training opportunities. Recipients will be asked to register between August and April (but classes can commence through out the year).

Each selected scholarship recipient will have the option to teach a workshop or seminar for others at Workman Arts. The workshop can include aspects learned as part of the scholarship or other artistic elements if the skills and techniques are still new and in development.
