|About||The Stobart Foundation is a non-profit foundation offering support to emerging artists who paint directly from life.|
|Mission||The Stobart Foundation is a non-profit charitable trust formed by artist John Stobart as a venue through which to inspire, support and strengthen the passion and commitment of artists who paint directly from nature.|
The Stobart Foundation understands the challenges facing fine art students as they leave school to pursue a career in fine art.
We offer support to artists aspiring to establish themselves professionally through the practice of working directly from the subject. Twice annually the Foundation offers grants to fine art students transitioning to professional artists.
Founder and classically trained artist, John Stobart recognized from personal experience that this time is crucial in an artists development. His goal in establishing the foundation was to offer an environment of support and provide financial assistance to those at a time when their energies and resources are at their lowest point.
The foundation accepts applications and offers grants to qualified candidates twice annually. Additional information and grant forms may be found at www.StobartFoundation.org.
