Fine Arts Scholarships

Visual Art Scholarships

Portfolios are the artist’s record of their learning and personal achievement. Many of our classes require documentation of the learning process with project notebooks.

Keeping track of your creative process affirms subtle accomplishments along the way.

Transfer to another school or potential scholarship opportunities are enhanced with an excellent portfolio.

Our visual arts faculty are available to assist students interested in preparing a portfolio for scholarship opportunities.

Please contact Austin Roberts by email or call 217.641.4999 for more information on portfolio reviews.
