Artists with practices in traditional art forms such as weaving, beadwork, drawing, carving and painting are encouraged to apply. Selected artists will lead a minimum of three workshops. Each workshop will be 2 - 2.5 hours long with up to 12 participants. Selected artists will be supported by Richmond Public Library to provide workspaces, secure storage, scheduling, promotion and registration of participants. 

 

Four selected artists will each be paid $1,500 for 3 workshops. A materials budget of up to $500 will be available for each artist, Artist will submit receipts to be reimbursed for material expenses.
