Dear Artists:

If you are a member of an IAPS member society, you are eligible to enter the 2011 IAPS/UCT Scholarship competition. If you wish to submit an entry, please contact Mary Ann Warner the MPS Membership Coordinator to receive your proof of membership in the Maryland Pastel Society.

Each year, the IAPS Education Fund sponsors scholarships for pastel artists to study with selected instructors. The 2011 instructors are Terri Ford, Liz Haywood-Sullivan, Kim Lordier, Maggie Price and Urania Christy Tarbet.

The jurors for the scholarship awards are Urania Christy Tarbet, Pat Suggs and Brenda Mattson. Each scholarship winner will be assigned to a workshop instructor on a random basis.

Scholarships are a maximum of $500 each and may be used only for the actual cost of a workshop, and may not be used for travel, lodging, or purchases of art materials for the class. Scholarships must be used within the 2011 calendar year.

Deadline for entry is December 20, 2010 (postmark date). Notification will be made in mid-January, 2011.
