Artist Opportunities

Applying for grants is a great way for artists to supplement their income to ease the financial burden that often comes with being a working artist. These grants help you pay for materials, studio space, or even rent, giving you the freedom to work in an unrestricted manner and dedicate your time to being fully creative without the day-to-day pressure of paying bills.
