Outside the Lines Art Gallery is proud to announce that applications are now available for the newly established JoAnne Hauser Warren Memorial Scholarship. The application can be found on the Outside the Lines website at www.otlag.com.
JoAnne Hauser Warren was a watercolor painter from Cuba City, WI, who created vibrant and joyful watercolor paintings until her unexpected death in the fall of 2014. She touched all she encountered with her colorful spirit and enthusiasm for the arts. JoAnne made her living as a working artist, selling her watercolor paintings in galleries and art fairs throughout the area. Art education was very important to JoAnne; she was both a student and a teacher in her adult life, returning to the University of Platteville to receive her BFA in 2010. This $750 memorial scholarship has been created in her honor and is generously provided by her son Christopher Warren.
The scholarship is open to both graduating high school seniors and adult students who are pursuing a two- or four-year degree in the visual arts. Applicants must reside or be attending a school within 15 miles of Cuba City, WI. Qualifying addresses include Belmont, Benton, Cuba City, Dickeyville, Hazel Green, Kieler, Platteville, Potosi, and Shullsburg, WI; Dubuque, IA; and East Dubuque, Galena, and Scales Mound, IL.
Preference will be given to continuing education adults and to those showing a financial need. Applicants must already be accepted into the school of their choice and be able to provide a copy of their letter of acceptance upon request. Applications are due no later than July 1, 2016.
