Scholarship Program's "Raffle of Fine Art"
Since 1962, Wickford Art Association has annually awarded scholarships to outstanding students in the community. In order to fund the awards, artists generously donate their fine art for a Raffle at the annual summer Wickford Art Festival. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the July 11 &12 Festival has been cancelled. All raffle tickets purchased prior to May 1 will be honored at the Fine Art Raffle during the 2021 Wickford Art Festival. The raffle allows WAA to provide Scholarship Program awards $3,250 to 3 public high school students attending college the following fall, and a fourth $500 award is funded by the Rhode Island Art Education Association. The Scholarship program awards help offset students’ college expenses, allowing them to focus on their continued studies in art.
