Mountain View, CA

Twenty-one young artists in grades 1-8  recently received scholarships for summer study at the Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA). Recipients come from the twenty-one schools throughout Silicon Valley where CSMA provides Art4Schools, a weekly, hands-on, skill-building program that reaches thousands of children annually at public and private schools. Art teachers nominated students based on talent, dedication and focus in their weekly art classes.
“These scholarships allow children to continue their arts education by choosing a class or art camp to attend at CSMA during the summer or next school year,” said CSMA Art School Director, Linda Covello. “Children build on what they have been learning throughout the year in their art class at their local school and continue to develop skills and express their creativity while having a wonderful summer art camp experience . . . With these scholarships, we are able to acknowledge and encourage the creative expression and artistic interests of these students."
