Thank An Art Teacher Scholarship

Deadline: February 1, 2018

There are so many art teachers out there, all doing the very important job of introducing young people to drawing and painting. Many of us can tell stories about someone from our past who made a difference – sometimes we can credit that we are painters at all to a single person. Often this person is an art teacher from our school days.

It is therefore with great pleasure we announce our Thank An Art Teacher scholarship. This scholarship includes tuition for a one week course during our Spring Session (March 16 – April 6). The scholarship will be awarded to three Art Teachers currently living and working in Sweden. Also included in the scholarship is a dinner at a restaurant in Gothenburg together with the other two awardees, and instructors and staff from Florence Academy of Art / Sweden.

Who is eligible for nomination?

Anyone who lives in Sweden and works as an Art Teacher in Elementary School or High School.
