I could teach you the secrets to making art, how to create great paintings or even how to make a video game from scratch. The possibilities are endless, but not without major fees. That isn’t the case at Art-A-Week. The Art-A-Week artists, like any other artists in this country, are fully supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and are in demand to teach nationally and internationally.
How can young artists afford to attend Art-A-Week? If you are not a student, you can pay the usual rates for Art-A-Week Artists: $300/month plus $20 application fee. You can also pay a subscription: $25 per month plus $20 application fee. There are monthly fees of $50, $350 and a full year subscription of $2,500.
Is Art-A-Week like Scratch Week or other Art-A-Week weekend festivals? No. You cannot bring your work, or any other piece, to the event. Anyone with a computer is welcome to attend. Everyone walks away with a new idea or a new skill or a new artistic experience. It is a community of young talented people working together to bring art to all Americans who want to hear it. It is one of our great successes and its success is the lifeblood of the National Endowment for the Arts. All the art that is exhibited at Art-A-Week is for free. When you come, no questions asked.
Why did you invent an Art-A-Week? My first thought was just to do something for the kids. As we began to talk more about the benefits of art, the more we realized how important this opportunity was. What better way could we use a lot of money from this grant to do good things for society? We can’t afford to have art for free and I think we need to pay for it.”
Why are there two Art-A-Week events? The first one, Art-A-Week, was established in 1987 and since then has grown to become the largest, most vibrant, and most successful Art-A-Week in the world. The National Endowment for the Arts now supports Art-A-Week with a total allocation of $3 million annually. The second one, the Art-A-Week Festival, is a yearly celebration of the art of America that raises millions of dollars for art programs.
