WITVA’S PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:
Awarding COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS to worthy, talented students entering or already enrolled in graduate art programs (awarded $20,625 to college students in 2015); Awarding HIGH SCHOOL SCHOLARSHIPS and CASH AWARDS to Palm Beach County High School students (awarded $26,375 to high school students in 2015).
Fundraising is a big part of WITVA. One of our biggest fundraisers is the LYNN TRAVIS STENDER FUND that produces an outstanding luncheon every year. This annual luncheon takes all year to plan by a committee of fourteen exceptional ladies and is indeed a day that is never to be missed. They always strive to make each year more exciting then the last. It is truly a wonderful experience to share with all of your friends at WITVA. There is no way to beat having a really fabulous day while you are supporting such a worthy cause.
Annual Spring Celebration of High School Art is a month long exhibition at SUGAR SAND PARK, honoring Palm Beach County high school artists and their teachers. This concludes with an Awards Reception attended by the students, their families and their teachers. A local dignitary gives the keynote address stressing the importance of ART in the public schools.
The Wonderful World of Art program introduces kindergarten and first grade public school students to the Masters. Our members work with teachers to present artworks and guide students in discussions about them.
Our HOSPITALART program is comprised of WITVA members who design and paint canvases, which are then donated to not-for-profit organizations such as hospitals, community centers and shelters for abused women and children. Since 1999, more than 2000 canvases have been donated in the Miami/Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in South Florida.
VISIONS IN ART is a slide presentation lecture, showing the variety of artistic disciplines that comprise the Women In The Visual Arts. It is a presentation that is offered, free of charge, to any organization that wishes to present an interesting and educational program. A donation to our College Scholarship would be greatly appreciated.
WITVA ART SHOWS take place a minimum of four times a year, with ONE OPEN SHOW that includes both male and female non-member artists. Prior venues have included: The American Orchid Society in Delray Beach, the Delray Beach Library, Palm Beach Gardens City Hall, the Highland Beach Library, Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton, the Coral Springs Museum, the David Posnack JCC in Davie, the Nathan Rosen Gallery in Boca Raton and many more.
