The scholarships will be presented by WAS Scholarship Chair, Barry Stefan. Each scholarship recipient will display their artwork and share their process, as well as their future plans.





“The Foreteller” by Jakira Julbe




The Wellington Art Society (WAS) has been supporting the advancement of the arts in the Palm Beach County community since 1981 with the intent to encourage young artists to pursue careers in the fine arts, provide programming that expands art in public places, and make art accessible within the community daily.






“Little Red” by Isabella Mayman




The WAS Scholarship Program was established in 2001 to provide scholarships to talented young artists for art related College and University expenses and tuition costs.  Over the past twenty-two years, WAS has awarded over $120,000 in scholarships to some of the brightest and most creative students within our community. Past recipients of the WAS Scholarship have gone on to become educators, illustrators, authors, curators, artistic directors, professional artists and art advocates.







To support the Scholarship Program, WAS relies solely upon money raised from donations, membership dues, monthly raffles, artist exhibitions, municipal art shows, and commissions. Help support the WAS Scholarship Program with a tax deductible donation on its website:   






The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization in its 41st year.
