This is a great way to fund your art projects and get familiar with writing essays for grants. I have received 2 small artists grants ($500.00 each) and it can make a difference between low budget and finer quality materials. In addition, I live in Douglas County, but I won a grant for Grant county because no one from Grant County applied for one that year.

In addition to the grants, it is important to register with your regional arts council. I was able to locate artists for my new art gallery through the name lists. For information about my gallery, go to www.rubyhillgallery.com .
