Artists Along the Bitterroot connect with youth | Local News – Google Alerts

Artists Along the Bitterroot, a local nonprofit, is happy to announce they have received funding for their 2019 Youth Art In Action Program. We are very grateful to have received donations from the Rotary Club of Hamilton and the Rapp Family Foundation. These funds will be used to provide monies for professional artists’ residencies and the art supplies needed for the free workshops for youth artists.

This year’s program has expanded to include more workshops and artists as well as including younger ages. In addition, Montana Bliss Artworks’ ARTspace and the O’Hara Commons will be providing spaces for the workshops. Some artists also host their workshops at their studios so youth artists can learn how artists create and manage their work as professionals.

Preregister at Montana Bliss Artworks Gallery, 101 S. Seventh St., Hamilton, MT 59840. Contact the coordinator Jean Driescher for more information and registration packets at jdriescher@gmail.com or 406-210-4631. Class sizes are limited so be sure to register soon.
