Art Society Offering Scholarships

The Wellington Art Society is currently accepting applications for its one-time $500 to $1,000 college art scholarships for graduating seniors who live in and attend high school in Palm Beach County.

The scholarship is available to students planning a college major in visual arts. Applications can be obtained from school art teachers or from the Wellington Art Society by contacting Suzanne Redmond at

Requirements for the scholarship are as follows: students must reside in and attend high school in Palm Beach County; students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in visual arts and an overall GPA of 2.0; and three art classes in high school must have been completed. An artist’s statement and career goal must be submitted, along with 7 to 10 photographs for viewing, a letter of recommendation from a faculty member and the student’s transcript.

The application package for the scholarship is due March 25 and should be sent to the Wellington Art Society, P.O. Box 212943, Royal Palm Beach, FL 33421-2943.

The Wellington Art Society Scholarship, established in 2001, has provided 30 talented young artists with money for their art-related expenses, such as art/photographic supplies and books or tuition for visual art classes. Proceeds from the organization’s annual art exhibitions and sales, such as ArtFest on the Green and Whole Foods Market art shows, support the scholarship fund.
