I don’t like being long-winded. We’re artists, and we’re busy.
Deeds are what matters. Actions matter. Words may inspire (you knew I was coming to this . . . !), but it is what people DO that makes a difference.
So February is Black History month, and it’s when we study and think about our history in relation to social justice and civil rights. But WCADC isn’t just thinking, and we’re not spilling gratuitous words. We’re DOING.
Our first scholarship is now open for entries. Actions are what matters. What a very “in” deed this is!
You may now pass the word with pride about our scholarship.

From the Scholarship Committee:
Thank you again to all of the artists that submitted to the "See My Color" virtual exhibit. Your exhibition entry fee helped fund this scholarship for a local female-identifying BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Person of Color) art student. WCADC matched $1,000 of the entry fees to make the scholarship award $2000.
As our mission states, we seek to create community through art, education, and social justice. Along with awarding the scholarship, we are offering mentoring to any of the students that want to apply for the scholarship. We hope to expand this mentoring to any student in the area needing a professional artist as a mentor. In order to do that, we need your help. Please let us know if you would like to be a mentor by emailing email@example.com
The scholarship process will culminate in a virtual art exhibit May 1- June 30, 2021 for the top five student applicants. This will be an invaluable experience for the students and a great preparation for their art education and budding careers. The winner of the scholarship will be announced at the reception on May 13, 2021.
Again, thank you for helping us to make a difference in the local art world.
