AP Art: Young Arts

The Young Arts Scholarship Competition (formerly known as the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts) is open to creative students grades 10-12 and in addition to the millions of dollars in awards (up to $10,000 to each student), they also award students participation in Master Classes with the likes of: Edward Albee, Frank Gehry, Julian Schnabel, James Rosenquist, Kathleen Turner, Bruce Weber, and Robert Redford.  Some of YoungArts’ work is featured in its Emmy nominated HBO series YoungArts so you can take a look on the web and see how it works.  I've had a few students win this award in the past and trust me it's well worth applying for!!
