Scholarship Information


Art is for everyone.  We are thrilled to be able to offer financial scholarships to make art instruction accessible for any child!  Two full scholarships are available each 'Art Class Series for Kids' season in 2023.  

This opportunity has been made possible through the generosity of the 'Pennsylvania Council on the Arts' and 'Community Partnerships (RC&D), Inc' by awarding a grant to Anthracite Creative Works.  We appreciate their support in serving our community through the arts.

How to Apply

Anyone who feels their family cannot afford the full registration fee can apply for a scholarship.  Full scholarships are awarded to two students per season for the 2022/23 year.  After the application window closes, recipients will be selected by a random drawing from amongst all applicants.  

The application window for the upcoming 'Fall Art Series for Kids' closes on August 31st, 2023.  All applicants will be notified of their status via email.

In order to be considered, fill out a Scholarship Application form.  It will also serve as your registration for the upcoming season.

Scholarship Policies

  • Once a scholarship application is received, it locks your child’s place in the upcoming class season until the scholarship recipients are chosen.  

  • Those who apply and are not selected for scholarship can still maintain their enrollment for the upcoming season by declaring their intent to pay the registration fee by the registration deadline. If not, the spot will open up for the general public until the registration deadline is met.

  • Students selected for scholarship can re-apply only in a non-consecutive season.  Students who were not selected can reapply for the following season when registration opens up.
