The Clark Hulings Fund
for Burgeoning Visual Artists
Clark Hulings was not a teacher, or so he always said. However, he was keenly aware of the debt he owed to all of his own teachers and supporters throughout his long career, and steadfast in his desire to impart what he knew to others. In that way, he taught indirectly, by “passing along” what he had himself learned. He did this through his books, videos and occasional lectures, and also through informal advice and suggestions offered to individual painters who sought him out. He will continue this support through the Clark Hulings Fund for Burgeoning Visual Artists.
The Fund is intended to support people like Clark Hulings, who continued to study and hone his craft all of his life. Hulings embarked on his easel-painting career when he was forty years old, abandoning a thriving profession as a commercial illustrator to do so. He never stopped trying to be a better artist, continuing to take live drawing classes until well into his eighties. He understood that artistic development can and should occur continually, and this fund is intended to offer support to visual artists at whatever stage and age they may find themselves.
We will be updating this page as we solidify specifics for this fund. Meanwhile, we thank you for your generous support of it.
