The goal of our Summer Arts Camp program is to help area children improve themselves while having fun engaging in art activities. Involving children in self-expression and creative discovery engenders an enthusiasm for learning that has a positive impact on each child’s development.
Six talented Worcester County students have been each awarded $1000 art scholarships from the Worcester County Arts Council in support of their artistic goals.
Fiona O’Brien and MaryJo Wheatley, both graduating Stephen Decatur High School seniors, Rachel Hobbs and Kayla Isaacs, graduating seniors from Snow Hill High School, Kasey Jones, an art major student at Salisbury University, and Maggie Winterling, student of music program at the Middle Tennessee State University.
Kasey Jones and Maggie Winterling are both previous recipients of Art Scholarship from the Arts Council.
Scholarship awards for MaryJo Whetley, Fiona O’Brien, and Kayla Isaacs were made possible by a generous contribution provided by John Sisson and his Family in memory of his nephew, John Carroll Sisson III.
All scholarship recipients were recognized at the Annual Membership meeting of the Arts Council held Saturday, June 6th.
