Student Artists Awarded Scholarships

Posted by admin in Recent News, Student Program Updates

On January 22, 2016, twenty-one promising student artists were awarded scholarships at the Scholarship Foundation’s 37th annual Art Scholarship Reception and Exhibition.

The financial awards are part of the Art Scholarship program, which invites high school seniors from the southern part of Santa Barbara County to submit their artwork to be judged by a panel of prominent local artist. The judges this year were Anthony Askew, Patti Jacquemain and Garrett Speirs.

Students applied to the Art Scholarship program in November 2015. Those selected to compete presented a portfolio of their best work to the judges at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Ridley-Tree Education Center at McCormick House on January 14, 2016. One week later, the winners were feted by their families, Scholarship Foundation supporters and local art patrons at an exhibition and reception in their honor.
