2022 South Arts Scholarship
This year's winner is Julia Marshall, a senior art student at Bethel Park High School. Jeanie Slater, co-president of South Arts and members of the Bethel Park Community Foundation presented her a $1000 Scholarship. Julia plans to major in Art Education at Indian University of Pennsylvania. This is South Arts first scholarship and we hope to make this an annual scholarship.
South Arts Pittsburgh, founded in 1984, was designed to bring education, cultural outreach, and networking opportunities to the community through various art programs.
South Arts is home to over thirty members, ages 18 to 100+, from the beginner hobbyist to professional artist, living in Pittsburgh's South Hills and surrounding areas.
The nonprofit hosts a weekly open painting session on Friday mornings at the Schoolhouse Art & History Center building on South Park Road in Bethel Park, bi-weekly figure drawing classes on Wednesday evenings, and fine art courses taught by professionals. In addition, South Arts helps artists promote their work in local exhibitions. South Arts recently added an annual scholarship to a BPHS senior art student that was presented in May.
The organization is funded, in part, by a generous grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council Chapter.
