PAINTS brings together professional visual and fine crafts artists, educators and students all over the province. We’re always looking for more artists who interested in spending some time working with children and youth. All members of VANS or NSDCC are eligible. There is no fee to apply or participate. The application is simple; fill out the online form and send us a copy of your artist resume and some images of your work. The PAINTS program is pretty straight forward. Projects range in scope from 3 hours to 12. While projects of course are made to work for students ranging in age and ability (the program is for grades Primary to 12), there should always be a connection back to the artists own work. Artists are paid a rate of $50/hour. And we also support some materials, and the artist’s mileage expenses. The next deadline for artists to apply is December 1st. The next deadline for schools and teachers to apply for a PAINTS project is September 30th. Questions? Contact Andrea Ritchie at 902 423-4694 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
