My big list of Art scholarships A plus some art advice.

So, are you an artist? Do you know one? Here is some advice and some websites for you.

First, know that many art schools have in-house scholarships. If you have chosen an art school already, then check with the Art Department or your advisor to find out what the school offers. They also may have residencies, work-study programs, graduate assistantships, and more.

You can sometimes also find these resources at your school's website.

Do you have an online portfolio? It can only help you. Of course, you will probably be making one at your school too, like teachers do. It will be a valuable tool to help you get a job or clients later on also.

Have you been in a show yet? Get some work together and apply to be in a public show or enter some local contests. Join a local art group or two. These things help you get noticed and meet other artists and collectors too.

And it does NOT hurt to read up on what you love.

Here are some online resources to help you too.
