20 May HU Art Animation Student Wins Scholarship
Sarah Krzynowek, a senior animation student at Huntington University, has been awarded the Student Illustrator Scholarship to attend a conference in Los Angeles in August hosted by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. The SCBWI is the world’s largest professional organization for children’s book illustrators and writers.
Krzynowek, a native of New Hartford, Conn., was one of only three to receive this scholarship.
“It’s unheard of for a small liberal arts college student to receive this scholarship over an illustration major at an arts school,” said Bryan Ballinger, associate professor of digital media arts at HU. “This is a big deal for the university.”
The scholarship will provide admission to all conference events including keynotes and breakout sessions, entry in the Juried Portfolio Showcase, attendance to the illustration master class, an individual portfolio consultation with an illustrator or art director, and one year’s society membership dues.
