It's Scholarship Time!

One of the most rewarding activities of the Pacific NorthWest Art School, aside from the 80 plus workshops we offer and free community events, is our annual awarding of scholarships to well-deserving students. This year we have been pleased to honor three students with scholarships.

New this year is our Betty Jane Miller Watercolor Scholarship. Betty Jane was an active member in the early days of the school and her estate has left the school a wonderful legacy in the gift of scholarship funds specifically for watercolor students. We are proud to have awarded our first annual Betty Jane Miller scholarship this year.

Also, another beloved and well known artist in our community was Joan Brosnahan. This year we were thrilled to award a scholarship for a Mixed Media student who has received the “Joan Brosnahan Scholarship”.

Finally, in the medium of photography, we were able to award the “Marilyn Winter” photography scholarship to a deserving scholarship applicant.

We are also actively seeking donations for these three scholarship funds as well as for our Coupeville High School Scholarship and our Youth Art Scholarships. In order to continue to give the gift of art we need the support of the community to perpetuate these funds. If you would like to donate to any of these funds, we have made it easy for you! Simply visit our website at www.pacificnorthwestartschool.org and click on “Donate”. You will be taken to a page where you can donate any amount to a list of scholarship opportunities.

Consider leaving a lasting legacy by setting up a provision in your estate planning by making a gift of art education. We are located at 15 NW Birch Street, Coupeville and we encourage you to stop by and visit us.
