Lake Region Artist Mentor Program is Now Taking Applications

FERGUS FALLS, MINN: Lake Region Arts Council is once again offering regional high school students in grades 9-11 the opportunity to be a “protégée artist”. The LRAC Artist Mentor program matches students with professional artists who will mentor the students for 15 hours this summer. Students also have the option to attend any Minnesota arts workshop or summer class. Either option allows students to expand their artistic skills and explore new disciplines.

The deadline to apply is February 1, 2017.

The awards are based on the student’s application and an in person review by a panel of professional artists. The review will be held on March 4, 2017 at Underwood High School. Eligible students must live in Becker, Clay, Douglas, Grant, Otter Tail, Pope, Stevens, Traverse or Wilkin Counties. The $600 Artist Mentor grant is available in all artistic disciplines, including music, painting, ceramics, literary arts, poetry, dance, multi-media arts, performing arts, etc.

The Artist Mentor Grant is a great opportunity. Please share this information with any young artists who could benefit from studying with a Mentor.
