WHAT IS PLEIN AIR?
In the world of Art, Plein Air is an expression from the French which means "in the open air," and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors. Plein Air painting challenges artists to concentrate on the information in front them, and re-create their impression with paint onto canvas in the moment.
In efforts to raise additional funds in support of the annual art scholarship program for local students, the Worcester County Arts Council is raffling off again a basket filled with original artwork generously donated by local artists.
PLEASE PURCHASE YOUR TICKET AND BE A PART OF OUR FUNDRAISING EFFORT TO ALLOW US CONTINUE THIS VALUABLE PROGRAM!
This is a merit scholarship and award decisions are based on evaluation of talent, dedication and potential, not financial need. Graduating seniors, who will major in the visual, performing, music or media arts, are encouraged to apply. Scholarships are also available to college art majors wishing to continue their education in the arts. Applicants are judged on their visual, dramatic, writing, or musical presentations in the form of DVD, CD, or power point recordings.
SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION DEADLINE: MARCH 15, 2016.
