Kaneko, Hastings launch program for young artists
Kaneko and Hastings College this summer will launch Open Space, a program for talented young artists.
Open Space will be provided to 20 Omaha-area high schoolers who are juniors in the current school year. It will be held at the Jackson Dinsdale Art Center at Hastings College. Students who, through a digital portfolio, show a high level of ability will be chosen.
The events will take place June 24-29. Applications must be submitted by April 13. The portfolio should include five to eight high-resolution photos of the student’s work. Besides submitting a portfolio, the student must be nominated by an art teacher.
Documents for teacher referrals and student applications may be found at hastings.edu/openspace. The seminar is valued at more than $1,000; students will be asked to provide $200. But no student will be turned away because of finances.
