Making a creative life available to all

Since the founding of Watkins in 1885, we have been committed to providing the finest studio art instructional experiences to our community—and to keeping the costs for those programs as low as possible. We realize, though, that even those fees can be a barrier to participation for some, which is why we offer full or partial Young Artist Program Scholarships.

Who is eligible to apply

You are eligible to apply for a scholarship on your child’s behalf if he or she is aged five to 13 and enrolled in one of Watkins Summer Youth Camps. We assign priority to children with artistic talent whose family financial situation may prohibit them from otherwise participating in the program.

How to apply for a scholarship

Application for scholarships to 2018 summer camps will be available mid-January.
