Woodstock School of Art is Awarded Grant

KINGSTON – The Woodstock School of Art (WSA) has been awarded a $2,000 grant from the Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation to support a Printmaking Studio Management Trainee program. The goal of the program is to prepare under-employed emerging professionals (ages 18–25) from the Hudson Valley for careers in printmaking and studio management through a series of educational workshops, mentoring opportunities with professional artists, and paid work experience.

“The Printmaking Studio Management Trainee program will provide job seekers access to broader experiences and will increase their prospects in NY and beyond. The program will also elevate WSA as an important, expanding, and viable arts organization that contributes to the economic vitality of our region,” said Nina Doyle, Executive Director of WSA. “We are grateful to the grant that Ulster Savings has provided us with in helping us accomplish this goal,” she added.

The Woodstock School of Art, Inc. is a not-for-profit, 501(c) 3 educational institution located in the famed original artists’ colony. It began as an innovative school of art sponsored by the Art Students League of New York in 1906 and from its very beginning became a magnet for working and beginning artists lured to the region. Today it offers year-round classes in fine art, including drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture in its historic buildings. Classes are open to all, with no entrance requirements or experience necessary.

The Ulster Savings Charitable Foundation was formed in 2003 to assist the local community in areas of housing, education, and human services.
