Ivan Smith, 2011 Artist Mentor Grant Recipient

Attention young student artists of all kinds (and parents, friends, and teachers of young student artists)!

The Region 2 Arts Council Artist Mentor Grant Program is an amazing opportunity for 8-12 grade student artists in the five counties of Region 2 to receive funding to work with an adult artist mentor. And the April 11 deadline is fast approaching!

Grants up to $600 cover 20 contact hours with a professional artist with whom you haven’t worked before, but are eager to mentor with.  Funds can also be applied to a camp, workshop, or class in your arts discipline.

Applications are available for download at the Region 2 Arts Council website, or you can pick up a paper copy at our office, 426 Bemidji Avenue, Bemidji.  Friendly arts council staff are happy to answer your questions about the application procedure as well.  Just give us a call at 218 751-5447 or email us at!

The Artist Mentor Grant Program is a Legacy funded grant.  Thank you to the people of Minnesota!
