The Arts Club of Washington sponsors an annual scholarship to recognize promising students specializing in a specific art form or medium. In 2017, the scholarship will be awarded to students in sculpture and ceramic arts.

The Awards

Winner: $2,000

The competition is open to college students in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia who are at least 18 years of age and who have not reached their 27th birthday by January 1, 2017.

The Competition

Scholarships will be awarded to students submitting an original sculpture or ceramic work demonstrating the artistic potential of these forms.

Judges not affiliated with the Arts Club evaluate entries on the originality of the sculpture or ceramic form, knowledge and technical mastery of materials, and lucid expression of creative thinking in the artist’s statement.

Students submit a CD or a USB flash drive containing single or multiple images of one work. They also complete an entry form and provide an artist’s statement of up to 250 words, a faculty recommendation, and a photocopy of their student ID.

There is no entry fee.

Scholarship winners will be recognized and their art displayed at a special event at the Arts Club on Friday, April 28. Winning pieces will be transported to the Arts Club by the artists.
