Opportunities for Young Artists

The Kelly has received some special grants earmarked for the younger set. One is the “Paint the Town” that subsidizes young artists for work painting eyesores in the community. It’s a great way to get original art seen by the community and make a little money. Anyone interested can contact Carol Hickman or Jennifer Eifert for more information. (Call Jennifer (334) 328-6446 ).

Starting in April, The Kelly will participate in “Linger Longer” in Downtown Wetumpka, providing an outdoor table with make-and-take artwork for and by youngsters.

High school seniors interested in an education in any aspect of art are encouraged to compete for the $1000 scholarship from the Sylvia McConnell Scholarship endowment. Art teachers and high school guidance counselors in the area have been given details. The deadline is the end of March.
