STERNE EDUCATIONAL SCHOLARSHIP
Congrats to Saira Raza and Lauren Phillips
This scholarship program awards two people the opportunity to take a free class or workshop at APS. One class and one workshop are awarded each year. All artists are eligible to apply, regardless of experience level.
This scholarship was created when children of Harold & Judi Sterne approached APS with a donation to commemorate the work of their parents who have dedicated their careers to the arts.
