Dear 9th, 10th, and 11th grade DVD students,

You’re invited to Ryman Art’s Application Day on Saturday, May 5th at Cal State University, Fullerton!

Ryman Art’s is an art organization based in Los Angeles that offers intensive studio art instruction, college and career guidance, art supplies, and support services—all at no cost to the student. In the past, many DVD students have been admitted into the program.

The event will be a great opportunity to learn about the program as well as participate in a drawing workshop hosted by Ryman Art’s faculty. This free workshop is for current 8th – 11th grade students. Students can used the drawings created on that day for their application to the program. This event is a great way for students, families and educators to get a feeling for what Ryman Arts is really like.

This workshop is free and suitable for all skill levels, all supplies and materials are provided. Students can choose between a morning (9:00 am – 12:30 pm) or afternoon (1:00 pm – 4:30 pm) session. To sign up students must email their name, session time, grade and high school name to agarcia@ryman.org.

There’s still plenty of space available for signups! Students or educators can drop off any applications on that day without participating in the event. The fall 2018 semester application deadline is May 18th. For more information on the application process, please visit the following link: https://rymanarts.org/students/apply-ryman-arts
Thanks!
