SHY RABBIT ArtAdvantage Program, helping to build an art community

SHY RABBIT Contemporary Arts: Gallery, Studio and Workshops mission is to promote, teach and nurture the creation of and appreciation for contemporary arts.

One of SHY RABBIT’s most heartfelt goals is to enable those who would not have the opportunity or the resources otherwise to participate in high quality WORK-shops and/or programs at SHY RABBIT.

In pursuit of these goals, SHY RABBIT created the SHY RABBIT ArtAdvantage Program, designed to expand upon the benefits it currently offers in the arts.

This scholarship and funding program was implemented in the fall of 2008, and has resulted in the granting of full and/or partial scholarships to 12 deserving participants, to date, with more currently enrolled or on a waiting list for inclusion.

Two of these ArtAdvantage program recipients participated in Basic Ceramic Techniques and Hand Building workshop held at SHY RABBIT recently, gaining invaluable knowledge through the hand’s on experience.

One student commented: “I would like to thank you for sponsoring me threw the classes at the shy rabbit, they have been very enjoyable, and have helped me become a better art student.”

Funds for the ArtAdvantage Program are provided by SHY RABBIT in combination with a few generous supporters who also believe that art has the ability to change and improve the quality of our lives.
