Artists need to learn the basic knowledge and skills of Northwest Coast Art if quality is to be maintained and evolution of the art is to flourish.
Do you know an inspiring young artist in British Columbia or The Yukon Territories who is aspiring to grow as an artist and learn to develop their skills and potential? Please share this with them.
The YVR ART FOUNDATION is pleased to announce a Call for Applications from BC and Yukon First Nations artists interested in applying for the new Aspiring Artist Awards of $500 each.
Up to five Aspiring Artist Awards are now offered annually to BC and Yukon First Nations youth (age 15-19) who wish to develop their artistic potential. This award is for young people considering a career as an artist and is to support the recipients’ self-directed work in the visual arts.
