THE YOUNG MASTERS PROGRAM

THE YOUNG MASTERS ART PROGRAM IS THE MULTIFACETED, EDUCATIONAL

ELEMENT OF THE OUT WEST ART FOUNDATION.

The Young Masters High School Art Classroom Assistance Program

This element of the Young Masters Art Program allows any high school in Montana the opportunity for professional assistance with regards to purchasing additional art equipment for needed classroom art supplies, workshops for single students or entire classrooms, or to bring in professional artists to instruct classes for a given period of time. NOTE: It is not the intent of the Young Masters Art Program to supplant any school's art budget, rather to supplement with funds to bring in new elements and opportunities related to focused art instruction.

High school art instructors may apply for the supplement funds to assist their programs by meeting specific requirements. These requirements include, but are no limited to, additional funding for specialized supplies for classroom projects, additional funds for class attendance to seminars, transportation costs for class to attend art related events, or equipment such as electronic drawing pads or design tools. Applications for Classroom Scholarships are accepted on an ongoing basis.Classroom Scholarships opportunities are funded in part by the generosity of out contributors.
