Artist Support Fund - this has now closed. Around half of our 55 artists are on low income and we're delighted to be able to help them with their expenses and travel costs. Final payments have been made this week. more info on the fund
Weekly ‘Pic’ and ‘Tip’ - each week we share an image that's been uploaded to our website on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram in our ‘Pic of the Week’ feature. We also feature a weekly ‘Tip of the Week’ - a gem from one of our previous artists sharing encouraging words to help you with your creative practice
Student Reps - we will soon be issuing our first Challenge for Student Reps for this academic year. They provide a crucial link between their fellow students and our AA2A artists. Challenges are optional and involve things like writing a blog about an AA2A artist or taking a photo of students working alongside artists. Starting in the New Year, we'll be telling Reps how they can help organise visits for a group of students to the studio of an artist who is part of our wider Engage network of previous AA2A artists
We'll be back with another update in early January.
Best wishes for the festive season, Mags, Wendy and Andy - the AA2A team.
