Got word yesterday that I've been awarded a grant through the Kentucky Arts Council. It's a Individual Artist Professional Development Grant to be used for workshops and other things. Since I'll be attending a Ken Auster workshop in less than two weeks I already had the fiscal end of the event worked out. That made it all the more easy to fill out the necessary paperwork/application with an itemized list. It was also a juried award, which means the Panel first, and then the Board, had to approve of my work samples, which makes me feel good.
