Two recent graduates have received art scholarships from their respective colleges.
Sarah Green was awarded a $3000 renewable Merit Scholarship to the Savannah College of Art and Design. Her primary medium is oil painting; her works have been exhibited at the Cultural Council and the Horry-Georgetown County High Schools Annual Juried Exhibition.
Langston Rockhill received a four-year Fine Arts Scholarship for $14,000 per year as an art major at Brevard College. Rockhill works both in visual art and music.
“These generous scholarships demonstrate both SCAD’s and Brevard’s confidence in the talent and training of our graduates,” said Dr. Gary Gates. “We wish Sarah and Langston all the best as they head off into what is promising to be a bright future in the arts.”
Our visual arts program is led by Mrs. Patrick. Students also receive encouragement and inspiration by visits to the school from regionally and nationally known artists such as Jonathan Green and Grainger McKoy. Sarah Green was given the opportunity to do master classes with Jonathan Green and Charles Williams through the Georgetown County Cultural Council, which also gave several other scholarships to TGS young artists and musicians.
Green’s and Rockhill’s college scholarships were awarded at the end of a very successful year of artistic achievement and recognition for the school, where several students’ works were selected to be hung at ArtFields and the Horry-Georgetown County High Schools Annual Juried Exhibition.
