|Color for Knowledge: R&F's Educational Support Program|
Color for Knowledge is a new program R&F has launched as a way to make connections between artists, retailers and communities involved in encaustic-based educational projects. This program supports local, national and international art educators by creating partnerships and supplying them with high quality art materials for their programs.
Through this program, R&F teams up with highly-motivated, independent working artists, helping to strengthen their projects and educational opportunities through donated materials, technical support, and by encouraging partnerships with local art supply stores. R&F appreciates the excitement and enthusiasm that these artists are spreading about encaustic. We understand that they are helping to make encaustic painting accessible to those who might not otherwise have an opportunity to be introduced to it. This program aims to help nurture the professional artist, create new and knowledgeable practitioners, and bring community art supply stores into the educational spotlight.
Eligible projects must be imminent, concrete opportunities, NOT proposed ideas. These are projects that prominently feature the use of encaustic, and are already planned and confirmed, with or without our support. Examples of eligible projects might include:
If you are an artist or art educator who feels you have a project that might qualify for this support, please submit the following via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org:
Proposals will be considered on a rolling basis, however, we caution artists not to rely on our support when planning their programs, as only a select number of projects will receive support.
