Four opportunities for your consideration
Send us your Studio Selfies
To launch the 40th anniversary of Visual Arts Nova Scotia in 2017, we want to recognize the hard work and dedication of the artists living and working in this province. To any visual artists living in NS, NSCAD students and faculty, and VANS members (current/past/future) please send us a selfie of you working in your studio (as you define it). The images will be used to create a short, promotional video to highlight your strength, resiliency and passion. The deadline has been extended so email your studio selfies to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 2.
Participation will automatically enter you into our draw for prizes!
First prize: 2017 VANS Membership + a workshop of your choice (Value of $85);
Second prize: 2017 VANS Workshop (Value of $55);
Third prize: 2017 VANS Membership (Value of $40).

Seeking new PAINTS artists
The Professional Artists in the Schools (PAINTS) program brings together professional visual and fine crafts artists, educators and students. It provides support for schools throughout Nova Scotia to bring professional artists into their classrooms to work directly with students. Our roster includes artists from all over the province working in different media in and in different ways. We’re always looking for more artists who interested in spending some time working with children and youth. All artists who are members of VANS or NSDCC are eligible. There is no fee to apply or participate. Artists are paid a rate of $40/hour (rate will increase to $50/hour in 2017). We also support some materials, and the artist’s mileage expenses.
For application and program details please visit the PAINTS website. The next deadline for artists to apply is December 1.
