Visions Graduates Prepare to “Bear Down” with University of Arizona Scholarships
Two of our very own Visions students, Tristan Craig and Yari Dvir from New School for the Arts and Academics in Tempe, were offered full-ride scholarships to attend the University of Arizona this coming fall.
Visions has partnered with the university for the past four years. Students have the pleasure of visiting the UA School of Art and take part in workshops led by the school’s amazing faculty.
Tristan and Yari were chosen based on their remarkable and expansive portfolios, their leadership in Visions and at school, and their academic achievements. We are so proud of Tristan and Yari and can’t wait for Visions to be represented in Tucson. Congratulations to these talented artists!
