Fund a Student | Sustain art learning opportunities for youth and those with financial need.
The Art Colony deeply believes that what makes us human is our ability to express ourselves. Therefore, everyone has a need for art and creation in their lives.
Unfortunately, we live in a time when not everyone has the means to access these opportunities. Because the Art Colony is dedicated to providing artistic opportunities for all, we maintain the Byron Bradley Scholarship Fund to offer tuition scholarships to youth and low-income participants.
The Art Colony has been honored to fulfill every scholarship request - which means we need to continually work to replenish the fund. Typical scholarship requests are $250.
Help us maintain the fund by gifting a scholarship or two! Or give any amount and bring art into the lives of our whole community.
Another scholarship opportunity to support is the Eric Thomas Emerging Artist Award. This scholarship is annually awarded to a Cook County High School Student who demonstrates clear artistic interest, originality and motivation. The award winner gets to take one Art Colony class of their choice, all expenses paid!
