The Lake Region Arts Council announced that 14 students were selected to receive 2020 Arts Mentorship Program Scholarships worth over $600 each. Due to COVID-19, this year’s mentorship is postponed until summer of 2021 and students will study their chosen art discipline one-on-one with a professional artist mentor. The program is funded by an appropriation from the Minnesota State Legislature and the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund.

Area students selected for the mentorship include: Henry Berberi of Morris, who will study jazz saxophone with Dr. Matthew Patnode; Tasha Koehl of Morris, who will study piano with Ann DuHamel; Cori Olson of Elbow Lake, who will study dance with Molly Johnston; Pierce Richards of Morris, who will study literary arts with Michael Lackey; Rachel Steen of Morris, who will study theater with Lindsey Ryding; Brett Keppers of Glenwood, who will study visual arts with Faythe Mills; and David Varga of Morris, who will study jazz saxophone with Jonathan Campbell.
