For the last seven years the Burlington Art in Action Group with the assistance of their sponsors have been able to offer an Arts Scholarship to a graduating Burlington high school student continuing post secondary education in an arts focused program.
This year we had 4 talented applicants representing 4 high schools from both Boards of Education. The 4-person jury reviewed the applications and were very impressed with the variety and quality of art presented. It was a difficult decision to select the winning candidate. This year’s winner of $1000.00 plus free admission to participate in the Burlington Studio Tour on the first weekend of November and be a part of a show at the Art Gallery of Burlington goes to
Joanna Roselli from Assumption Catholic High School.
Joanna will attend Ryerson University in the fall to study their new “Creative Industries Program” a 4 year program studying the business side of the arts. We invite all of you to join us in the fall at the preview show in October and visit the studios on the tour.
