May Scholarship Dinner – May 9th – 6pm, Griswold Center
RSVP – We need you! RSVPs are lagging for the scholarship dinner. We need your pot-luck appetizers, sides, and desserts to host our guests. We also need volunteers to help set up tables before and take down afterward. Email Beth for RSVPs and volunteering at VicePresident@WorthingtonAreaArtLeague.com
Let’s have a good turn-out for the students and their families.
Starts at 6pm with appetizers. Dinner at 6:30 followed by presentations to scholars. Art teachers from each of the three Worthington high schools are asked to choose a senior student who is an outstanding artist and who plans on furthering his/her education in an artistic field. Students will bring pieces and talk about their work.
Volunteers for set-up should be at the Griswold at 5:30.

What a great presentation by Cody Heichel. Amazing watercolors, I love his subject matter plus his ability to work with watercolor outside. Thanks so much for the presentation!
Thanks again Beth for arranging these amazing artists/speakers!

MAY SCHOLARSHIP DINNER – This year we will be awarding $500 each to 3 graduating seniors from the Worthington High Schools. These students are chosen by their arts teachers and will be pursuing art as they move to their next level of education. The evening starts at 6pm with dinner at 6:30. The league will provide pulled chicken and each member should bring a side dish. Our potlucks are great – we have some marvelous cooks.
After dinner we will introduce our award winners and they will share their work and future plans. These students are always amazing when they display their talents.
JUST A NOTE – WE ARE NO LONGER SERVING COFFEE AT OUR MEETINGS AND DINNERS. We throw away more than half of what we make and have to start set up very early in order to have it ready on time. So if you need a cup-o-joe please stop on the way and pick one up or bring one from home.

Dear Art Leaders,Sawmill Wetlands Educational Area is committed to providing outdoor experiences for kids of all ages. With that in mind, we are trying something new.The June 1st Sawmill Saturday will focus on artists in nature and provide an opportunity to create or share art that captures the wonder of nature.Young visitors will be provided paper and media to create their own piece of art. More experienced artists are invited to bring their own easels and materials to find a place on the boardwalk or program area.The attached flyer provides the details. You may change the Word document to fit your organization. Feel free to call me with questions or suggestions on how to make this a better event.Thanks!Michelle ShinewFriends of the Sawmill Wetlands614 793-0123
