Art Incentive Scholarship
The $2,500 Art Incentive Award is awarded based on the submission of 3-5 original works. The portfolio should include a variety of media (materials) and approaches and can include teacher assigned projects and/or work that the student has completed independently. Work can be from observation, imagination, and memory and may include paintings, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, etc.
One of the 3-5 pieces must be an observational drawing. Examples of observational work include landscape, still-life, self-portrait, figure drawings, and interior spaces. Observational work is defined as drawing or painting from life. Examples would include
sketching a bowl of fruit (still life), drawing from a model (figurative), or drawing a street scene (landscape). The image is not taken from either a photograph or the artist's imagination but from real-life observation.
After portfolios are submitted, students will be invited to meet with art teacher Rebecca Buchanan and asked to complete a drawing of a still life from observation in a group setting with other candidates.
This award is renewable.
Students with demonstrated financial need entering their sophomore year at SJB who have a consistent record of academic success and school service may be considered for limited tuition assistance sponsorships if they become available. More information is shared as the Jeanites enter sophomore year.
This application is different from an application for limited need-based Tuition assistance.
Additional opportunities may be offered to excelling students if funds become available.
