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 which is raffled at the Wickford Art Festival. This year, two raffle drawings will occur on Saturday- July 11 and Sunday- July 12 at 4pm. The WAA Scholarship Program awards over $3,000 to 3 public high school students attending college the following fall, with a fourth award funded by the Rhode Island Art Education Association. The Scholarship program awards will help offset students’ college expenses, allowing them to focus on their studies and art.
