COMPETITIONS and SCHOLARSHIPS

At the Center we believe every student has an artistic side. For those working hard to explore theirs, we’re honored to lift them up and reward their dedication through juried competitions and concerts. Scholarships are awarded to finalists to support their continued training in the visual and performing arts.
