The TAC AIR Scholarship Fund grants free tuition to one artist or designer working with textiles. Scholarship recipients demonstrate commitment to their art practice, identify with a historically underrepresented community in the arts and/or state the need for financial assistance to participate in the program and advance their artistic practice.
Textiles are made by many fibers, stitches, and layers interlaced together. The thinnest thread or smallest stitch each play an important role in supporting the textile. Our community of artists is like a textile in this way, the whole supports the individual and the individual contributes to the integrity of the whole. As a community funded arts organization we value the the support of our students, artists and community members to further our collective mission and dreams.
About Textile Arts Center
Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. At TAC, we aspire to unite the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts. Techniques like weaving, sewing, and dyeing are practical, connective, and process-driven—common denominators around the world. They are part of our collective history and vital to our ongoing expressions of design, art, and culture.
