Santa Rosa Promotes Continuing Art Education
The City of Santa Rosa, CA celebrated their Tenth National Arts Program® Anniversary with a bang. The exhibition, which is on display at the Finley Community Center through April 5th, features 192 pieces of artwork from city residents, including employees and their family members.
In addition to the overall increase in their participation numbers, the Teen 13-18 category tripled its representation with 37 artists, up from 13 in 2012.
Along with the 16 standard NAP awards, the city presented 26 Continuing Art Education Scholarship Awards for a total of 42 awards. The City of Santa Rosa has always taken advantage of this matching scholarship offered by the National Arts Program® and partners with institutions like Santa Rosa Junior College and the city’s Department of Recreation, Parks and Community Services to provide their participants with these artistic opportunities. The Continuing Art Education Scholarships are a great way to encourage participants to enhance their artistic skills and promotes the creation of new artwork for the next NAP show.
Both Dylan Hatfield (R) and Johanna Johnson (L) were awarded Continuing Art Eduction Scholarships in their respective categories, Youth 12 & Under and Intermediate.
