Awarded Dec 2, 2023
Michael Powell started teaching with ARTree in 2013. As an accomplished artist, he was able to teach in any medium and was well-known in Amp Up Your Art and in our evening Drawing class. Michael was fond of saying, "If you can see it, you can draw it," encouraging budding artists to persevere in their efforts towards realism. Michael was gentle and patient in his approach to teaching, and students achieved their best work with his guidance. This scholarship is awarded in his memory.
The Michael Powell Memorial Scholarship Fund is earmarked for new high-quality art supplies and 2 private 1-1 lessons from one of our teachers. Applicants must be 13 or older (adults included) and specify a medium of interest.
Bob Hernandez is the founder and President Emeritus of ARTree Community Arts Center. This scholarship fund has been earmarked for new, high-quality art supplies (valued at $200) awarded to the chosen students. Bob is now retired, and enjoys painting every day. He hopes these kits encourage young artists to routinely practice their art at home.
The Founders Scholarship will be given 2x a year, in September and April.
Congratulations to Emma Castro, age 8 and Sofia Franco-Garcia, age 15. September 2023 recipients of the Bob Hernandez Founders Scholarship.
