The Wellington Art Society recently presented its annual Art Scholarship Awards to Palm Beach County seniors who are planning a college major in visual arts. The scholarships are based on a combination of art work, GPA, the artist’s statement and career goals, and recommendations from a faculty member.
This year, the nonprofit awarded seven $1,500 scholarships. The selected students brought two or three pieces of their art work for display and spoke about their art work and future goals. Families of the students and their teachers attended the presentations at the Wellington Community Center.
Scholarship Awards went to: Sara Khambalia, Yeshiva High School; Madeline Horowitz, the Benjamin School; Kristian Lemajic, Forest Hill High School; Dalton Taylor, Dreyfoos School of the Arts; Serena Ho, Park Vista High School; Chrystie Tyler, Dreyfoos School of the Arts; and Seanna Harris, Dreyfoos School of the Arts.
The scholarship fund was established in 2001. Proceeds from the art society’s exhibitions, Art Fest on the Green and the Wellington Whole Foods Market exhibits help support the program.
