Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara Awards Grants to 22 Student Artists

Program provides scholarship support for students to attend college and major in the arts

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara is proud to support 22 local student artists with awards through its annual Art Scholarship Program.

The 2012 Art Scholarship Exhibition and Reception was held at the Ridley Tree Education Center on Jan. 19.

Pasty Hicks, director of education at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, presented a talk on “Making Connections through Art” and spoke to the quality and skill of the art in the exhibition. The Santa Barbara Museum of Art sponsors the annual event.

This year marks the 33rd year of the Scholarship Foundation’s Art Scholarship Program, providing local high school seniors with scholarship support, enabling them to attend college and major in the arts.

Scholarships are awarded based on the quality of student portfolios. The 2012 Art Competition was judged by artists Anthony Askew, Patti Jacquemain and Nancy Gifford.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
