Young At Art Scholarship Fund Seeking Donations
Our scholarship program needs your support for an extremely deserving local student. Lena is a veteran of our Young at Art Summer Scholarship program in 2018 and 2019 where she demonstrated exceptional artistic talent. She is presently a high school junior and has just been accepted at a pre-college summer program to Ringling School of Art. The cost for the program is $4,000. Fortunately, she has received a limited scholarship of $2,000 from the school.

With no flea market or raffles for 2020 and 2021, our monies are limited. However, Gold Coast will be contributing $500 in support of Lena. We are asking you to further show our support to Lena by contributing whatever you can to help her cover her tuition. If you are so inclined, you can submit your kind contribution big or small by clicking on the PayPal button below to make a donation. Please submit by May 8th.
Support Young At Art Now
More new items, and thank you to those who have purchased from previous lists.
Each year Gold Coast Watercolor Society has an awesome flea market of art supplies that have been donated by members and friends. Since the Pandemic we were not able to have the sale last March or this March, so we are offering items virtually.
All proceeds benefit our GCWS Young at Art Now outreach art program. If you see anything you like, let me know and we can meet at ArtServe for pickup. All offers are considered.
Happy Shopping!!!
