The City of Sonoma Cultural and Fine Arts Commission‘s 2019 Student Creative Arts Award Program is now open for entries. This award program is open to individuals between the age of sixteen and twenty-one, who reside within the Sonoma Valley Unified School District, and who are studying visual, literary or performing arts. One member of the Cultural & Fine Arts Commission noted “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 2019 Creative Artist Award Application form, a 200 to 500-word statement explaining the role that art has played in their life, what their plans are for continuing their artistic training, AND a portfolio of at least five, but no more than 15, examples of their work. All applicants will be asked to participate in an interview by Commission members.
Review the Program Requirements for any special submittal specifications. The deadline to submit an entry is April 5, 2019.
