The City of Sonoma Cultural and Fine Arts Commission is now accepting applications for the 2018 Student Creative Arts Award Program. This award program is open to individuals between the ages of sixteen and twenty-one, who reside within the Sonoma Valley Unified School District, and who are studying visual, literary or performing arts. Kate Schertz, Chair of the Cultural and Fine Arts Commission, recently stated “We are pleased to again be able to offer a $2,000 award to local up-and-coming artists to help them further their studies in the arts. I have been truly amazed by the talent demonstrated by Sonoma Valley students.”
Applicants must submit a completed 2018 Creative Artist Award Application form, a 200 to 500-word statement explaining the role that art has played in their life and what their plans are for continuing their artistic training, AND a portfolio of at least five, but not more than 15, examples of their work. All applicants will be asked to participate in an interview by Commission members.
