PPSCC Awarded Scholarships in 2014 To Four Aspiring Artists

Through its 2014 Scholarship Awards Program, PPSCC  honored four aspiring Cape Cod high school artists: Eddie Calle-Huerta of Dennis-Yarmouth High School, Julia Corbett of Barnstable High School, Amy Darbyshire of Sturgis Charter Public School and Molly Pollock of Nantucket High School.

Each received a scholarship of $500 in the form of a gift certificate for the purchase of art supplies, a set of artist-grade pastels and the opportunity to exhibit a work of art at the PPSCC Annual Members Show in the fall of 2014.

Can you help?

There are many opportunities to become more involved with PPSCC. The most direct way is to become a member of our board of directors. There are a few key openings now as some people are stepping down, and there will be more soon. We hope that some of you, our members, will step forward to assume the positions we need filled to keep us going. Remember, this is a volunteer run organization and we can't operate successfully without your help!
