Opportunity Description

TLC Student Visual Art Bursaries
The Lockdown Collection (TLC) is thrilled to announce another wonderful Lockdown opportunity for Art students!

William Kentridge has donated the below work to The Lockdown Collection (TLC) as an edition of 50 prints to raise funds for art-student bursaries.

The work provides us all with a challenge to reach towards our dreams for a better world. The purchase of one signed print supports an art student’s bursary for R12 000.
