Inspired by Gillian Leigh Moser, this program is designed to encourage young artists to develop their craft and provide a real-world taste of the business of craft.
Twice each year, a Budding Artist will be selected to display and sell their work for no charge during a selected three month period (usually April through June and October through December). Selection for inclusion and continuation will be at our sole discretion.
- be of primary school age (K-12);
- be serious about their craft;
- meet with selection committee to show and discuss their craft;
- provide an artist Bio for promotional purposes (website, display, press release);
- continually work to improve their craft;
- continually produce items for display and sale during the quarter they are featured;
- sign our standard Budding Artist Consignment Agreement, along with their legal guardian;
