2018 High School Graduate Fine Arts Scholarship Winner Announced

Art in Action 2018 – High School Graduate Fine Arts Scholarship Winner
In memory of Edward Robin Hoyer

Art in Action is please to announce our 2018 Scholarship winner Hannah Doherty from Nelson High School. Presenting the award in honour of Edward Robin Hoyer was Herschell Thompson, Edward’s partner. Next year Hannah will be attending Sheridan’s honours Bachelor of Illustration. This program totally suits her style of art. During the graduation ceremonies Hannah was also presented with the Nelson Art Awards.

In 2012, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Art in Action, we initiated an annual scholarship to encourage young artists in Burlington pursuing a post secondary education in the fine arts. That year we were able to offer 2 scholarships of $1000.00 each to two Burlington students. From 2013 – 2017 we have continued to presented one Scholarship of $1 – 1,500.00 to a talented graduating student.

Art in Action is very proud to be honouring our local emerging artists in this way and we hope for great things for Hannah in the future.
