Vero Beach Art Club
The Vero Beach Art Club awards 4 scholarships to Indian River County high school seniors annually to further their career in the arts. In 2018 we have increased our scholarships to $3500.00 for each of our 4 winners. The entries are judged by three examples of their artwork, and letters of reference from their art teacher or art-related mentor. Scholarship applicants may apply as a senior who is graduating from an Indian River High School and accepted to pursue an art related course of study at an accredited higher learning institution.
The Vero Beach Art Club's mission is to encourage and support both appreciation and creation of fine art with emphasis on painting, drawing, collage and sculpture. The Vero Beach Art Club is a non-profit organization and receives funding from donations for their education programs, scholarships and school outreach, Arts for Smarts, through their four main exhibitions, Under the Oaks Fine Arts & Crafts Show, Art in the Park, Art by the Sea and the Art Trail each year.
