Scholarship Foundation Supports Young Artists

Eighteen Local Art Students Receive Annual Awards and Exhibition

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara is proud to support local art students through their annual Art Scholarship Exhibition and Awards.

2011 marks the 32nd year of the Scholarship Foundation’s Art Patrons providing local art students scholarship support from the community. Scholarships were awarded to eighteen high school seniors planning to continue their education in the Art. This year’s winners attend Dos Pueblos, San Marcos, Laguna Blanca, Carpinteria and Santa Barbara High Schools.

Awards were based on the quality of student portfolios. The competition was judged by local artists Anthony Askew, Patti Jacquemain, and Joan Rosenberg-Dent. The Art Scholarship Exhibition and Reception was held Thursday, January 20 at the Ridley Tree Education Center.

Each year there are a number of talented art students the Foundation must turn away due to a lack of funds. Please contact the Scholarship Foundation if you or your business or community group would like to sponsor a scholarship for young artists.
