ACWC & Creekside Fabrics Visual Arts Scholarship

A partnership between the ACWC and Creekside Fabrics of Arcade, NY, this scholarship is awarded annually to one high school student who wishes to further their studies in visual arts.

ACWC & Creekside Fabrics Visual Arts Scholarship

This scholarship is for Wyoming County, NY high school students (grades 9 through 12) and is made possible through a partnership between the ACWC and Creekside Fabrics, Quilts & Yarns of Arcade. It is awarded each year to one high school student who wishes to further their studies in visual arts: photography, fiber arts, ceramics, carpentry, drawing or painting.
Valued at $900, the scholarship is a one-year apprenticeship to a local master in fine arts or crafts, culminating with an exhibition of work produced under the master artist. The recipient would work with the master artist to learn techniques and skills to improve the student’s knowledge and competence in the select field of discipline. The award is presented at the ACWC’s annual Community Arts Grants Awards Ceremony held in March.
