Vic,

Among the list of required items from the applicant is

"10-15 digital images of applicant's work with a description of each image"

Question, 10 - 15 different works or 10-15 images of maybe one or two works.

If it is 10 - 15 different project, how can someone starting out ever hope to get funding to help with good beginner classes.

I have an employee that is interested in taking the class that Kathy and Ken offer.

He has taken a week long workshop with Peter McGrain and has a few pieces but not 10. He shows good potential in the painting area which he really enjoys.

Is there any room for exceptions? And can the work he is doing for me, mostly glazing, be use for the 10 - 15 works?

Michael

the photos relate to the applicants abilities. So projects worked on, designs, art projects relating to their work etc, are all acceptable. Of course the more glass related the better
