Several students with whom I am currently working are artists. Musicians, dancers, photographers, 3D creators, all who are talented and planning to continue to pursue their art throughout their lives. I encourage all students to attend a college where they can continue to explore their expressive potential, either through extracurriculars, electives, minors or even majors. We don't know exactly how they will end up fitting their art into their college lives, but I insist that they attend a college that has the capacity to develop their interests, in whatever manner turns out to the the right choice.
I am researching scholarship opportunities for artists and have come upon an interesting list of scholarships for their consideration. I share this website with you (https://www.format.com/magazine/resources/art/art-scholarships), in case you are interested in developing your expressive voice and interested in picking up a few hundred or several thousand dollars in funding for your education or your artistic projects. It takes a little patience to work through the list for scholarships relevant to you. Much of the work I am doing now is setting calendar events to check for the start of the next application. These are services that I can provide for high school and college students, but I also recognize that many students and their family will have the time and energy to work through these opportunities on their own. I wish you the best in discovering, earning, and winning funds to help support your educational journey.
Shepherding our children to adulthood demands our love, our attention, and our acceptance of who they are.
