Introducing the FACE Scholarship Program

The publishers of Fine Art Connoisseur, along with a private patron who sees the importance of attending the Figurative Art Convention and Expo (FACE), are pleased to offer the FACE Scholarship Program. This initiative helps carry the torch of realism to future generations and ensures that emerging artists are exposed to the techniques of the masters who will be teaching at the conference.

The recipients will be awarded a full scholarship to attend the event, three room nights at the Biltmore Hotel*, and a travel-meal stipend totaling $500.
