STUDIO MEMBERSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS

In an effort to increase access to arts-based learning, we are expanding our scholarship program to include studio membership. Each season, we’ll have a limited amount of partial and full scholarships available. We encourage you to fill out a scholarship form and please ask for what you need. The Education Director is usually able to process scholarship applications in a week’s time or less.
