- To a female, emerging artist under age of 30, based on aspirations, circumstances, and existing works, per a selection committee of the retreat’s tandem teachers. Application must be made by August 15, 2011 with selection made by August 30, 2011.
- Emerging Artist Scholarship is a 50% reduction of retreat fee for full week, plus the two additional free days.
The retreat’s founder, Elaine Frenett, has felt some of her greatest joy’s as a teacher in the mentoring of young, emerging artists. Yet the retreat tends to draw participants who are fairly established in their professional and personal lives. To be with such women is indeed fabulous and it made last year’s retreat remarkable. In fact, all the participants from the first annual Alpine Women’s Journaling Retreat declared the experience to be transformative, refreshing, inspiring and empowering.
Yet, a big part of the joy of discovery comes in diversity and also a joy of mentoring. Thus was born this scholarship. With the 50% reduction of the formal retreat, plus the two free added nights, the entire term of lodging, food and workshops comes to less than $90.00 a day to the scholarship winner.
The application process is simple. Send us an email explaining what you would find interesting about this retreat and include a brief bio of yourself. Be certain to include your name, phone number, email address, city and state. Finalists may be asked to provide samples of their existing work.
Scholarship application must be submitted before August 15, 2011. Selection will be made by the tandem teachers – Elaine Frenett and Jean Warren – with the winner announced August 30, 2011.
