GV Kelley, a first year MFA Ceramics student, has been awarded a scholarship through the Penland School of Arts + Crafts Higher Education Partners Program.
Kelley found about the scholarship through the School of Art and Art History graduate student listserv.
“As soon as I saw the email I immediately set to work to fulfil the application requirements,” they said. “I wrote a letter to the current Director of the SA+AH, Maria Rogal, to talk about who I am, my experience at UF, why attending a workshop at Penland would aid my artistic growth and professional network, and how I could then benefit my school upon my return. I completely rewrote my artist statement to bring it up to speed with what I am making in graduate school. I also added a few photos of my work.”
