SNAP Scholarships 2019

SNAP scholarships are intended for artists and individuals who might otherwise be unable to access our courses but whose creative practice would benefit from the instruction and technical skill building provided from taking a printmaking course at SNAP.

SNAP will provide up to ten spots in our classes and workshops each year, free-of-cost, to scholarship applicants. SNAP printmaking classes and workshops are offered on a cost recovery basis and range in price based on materials required and the number of instructional hours. Our workshops and course fees range from $75 – $400. A SNAP scholarship will cover the full cost of the course instruction and the basic material fees for the duration of the course.

To apply for a SNAP scholarship we ask individuals to email their application materials at least one month (4 weeks) prior to the start date of the desired course. If the course is full or the dedicated scholarship spots have been awarded, the application will be reconsidered in the following session. All applicants will be notified of their application status.

SNAP courses are designed for individuals 18 years of age or older and instruction is delivered in English. Accommodation can be made for youth 16+ with a legal guardian waiver signed. Many printmaking processes are physically demanding and can require standing for up to 3 hours, upper body/arm strength, and some manual dexterity in the hands. SNAP staff are happy to provide advice and/or support to individuals requiring physical or other accommodation in our studio, we encourage you to be in touch with any questions and to discuss your individual needs.
