Phil Austin Memorial Watercolor Workshop Award
In honor of our founding instructor, Phil Austin, the Dillman's Creative Arts Scholarship Committee has created one $300 award to be applied toward Dillman's workshop fees.
Phil constantly exemplified the best possible attitude of sharing. Phil shared his special gifts and knowledge with his students and showed the patience every great instructor exhibits. We were privileged to have known Phil during the 20 years he taught in northern Wisconsin with Dillman's Creative Arts Foundation plus on trips to exotic ports of call such as, two trips to Bermuda, Cruises in the Deep and Western Caribbean plus Florida. Phil was still painting watercolors at the age of 94, when he passed away in April 2004.
The Phil Austin Memorial Award will be awarded and selected by the Dillman's Creative Arts Foundation Scholarship Committee from those applications.
Applicants may use the same scholarship application, This applicant must show financial need (as compared to the honorariums which do not specify financial need).
On your applications, please note you are applying for the "Phil Austin Award."
The criteria the scholarship committee will be using for their decision process is:
- Student paints in the same media as Phil, watercolor
- Certain classes are eligable for this grant, therefore, note a second and third choice for consideration
- Award is based upon availability
Thank you to all the instructors who have offered these options and also the patrons of the arts who have made donations for this purpose. Annually over $3,000 worth of scholarships are awarded.
