Selection process

Tips:

  • Tell us about yourself when you apply. Including a letter is important remember this is your chance to convince us why we should have you in our program

  • If you have samples of your work on social media let us know

  • Send in small samples or pictures (non returnable) make sure to write sample across the image. If denied sample will be shredded. 

  • Write legible. Chicken scratches or super fancy writing that isn't easy to understand will get you quickly denied

  • Artists are selected every quarter. Some are expedited, depending on what impression you make on us. Possible but rare

  • Our spots are limited and artwork is selected by artistic level. Beginners are usually not selected due to limited spots.

  • State or Federal Prison must allow artist to sell and receive money for their artwork
