Student Art Scholarship Program & Inspiration Farmers: Art Teachers Exhibit
The purpose of the program is to recognize exemplary student achievement in the visual arts by awarding scholarships to be used for tuition in colleges, universities, trade schools, and seminars. Scholarships are awarded as follows: First Place $2,000; Second Place $1,000; Third Place $500 in six different categories: Painting, Drawing, Mixed Media 2-D & 3-D, Photography and Digital Media. Those awarded Honorable Mention receive no scholarship but are invited to exhibit their work along with the scholarship winners at the Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, April 13-14, 2013.
The 2013 Student Art Scholarship Competition will be held Thursday, April 4-Saturday, April 6 at The Woodlands Children's Museum in Panther Creek.
In 2012, of 234 pieces submitted, 18 were awarded scholarships and 60 received “Honorable Mentions”. Following the judging, an exhibit of all the artwork was open to the public at The Woodlands Art League.
We encourage teachers to enter artwork from qualifying students even if that student is not going into an art career, as we are trying to build a life-long appreciation for the arts in the next generation.

Inspiration Farmers: Art Teachers Exhibit
A special exhibit was held in August, 2012 highlighting the personal art work of the local area Art Teachers who donated to the Early Inspiration Gallery and the Art Teachers whose students participated in the Student Art Scholarship Program.
These teachers, whom we call “Inspiration Farmers”, work very hard to educate and inspire students from kindergarten to high school in the visual arts. Without them, many children would never know about the wonderful world of imagination and color and texture and creativity. At this exhibit, which featured several pieces of personal artwork from each teacher, prizes were awarded including the Grand Prize of an all-expense paid trip to the Texas Art Educators Association annual convention. Barbara Andes from Conroe ISD was our first winner. Details for the 2013 Inspiration Farmer’s Exhibit will be available soon.
