Kiwanis Carefree offering art internship

Staff ~ 3/25/2015

CAREFREE – The Kiwanis Art Enrichment Internship is offering freshman, sophomores, and juniors the opportunity to study at the renowned Scottsdale Artists’ School.

The internship is open to Cactus Shadows students, as well as charter school and home-schooled students within the Cave Creek Unified School District boundaries. Each winner will select a course from the Scottsdale Artists’ School summer catalogue. The winners will attend one class a week for four weeks during the month of June or July. These are adult classes providing an accelerated learning experience.

The students, along with their parents and their art teachers, are required to fill out applications available at www.kiwaniscarefree.org, due April 1. The jury process takes place in mid-April. The awards are not solely based on talent and often go to the students that the committee feels can benefit the most from this special experience. Students are asked to write about the role that art plays in their lives, and hopefully in their futures. The parents sign a commitment to provide transportation and support to their artist; teachers share their assessment on the students’ creative spirit and reliability.

Kiwanis love to see what their Art Enrichment winners have created. The students are required to give a presentation at a Kiwanis Club of Carefree luncheon to thank Kiwanis for providing them this artistic opportunity.
