Announcing a New Scholarship for Artists


Fine Art Connoisseur magazine recently announced a new opportunity for artists to attend a prestigious art conference. The scholarship for artists includes tickets to the Figurative Art Convention & Expo (FACE), a three-night stay at the host hotel, and spending money.

4 Tiers of FACE Scholarships for Artists
• Four art students
• Two teachers (instructing at a high school, college, university, or atelier)
• One senior (age 65 or older)

The event, which features four days of art mentorship from several top masters, will focus on figurative and portrait drawing and painting. It will include demonstrations with live models onstage, plus a studio that attendees can access for painting from models.

According to publisher Eric Rhoads, “This event is historic and something everyone involved in figurative art should consider attending. By making it available to some students as a scholarship, we’re giving them a chance to be part of this historic movement and a chance to meet top artists to encourage them toward their future as artists.”

Onstage mentors at the conference include artists Casey Baugh (for an optional pre-convention workshop), Michelle Dunaway, David Kassan, William A. Schneider, Burt Silverman, Sadie Valeri, and Rose Frantzen, with more to be announced soon! The hosts are Fine Art Connoisseur editor-in-chief Peter Trippi and publisher B. Eric Rhoads.

Details of the art scholarship are available here.
