The Old Town Art Center offers need based financial aid through the Suzanne Flavin Scholarship Fund to qualified students of any age. Financial assistance is limited and awarded to no more than two students each session – one class in watercolor and the other in any medium. To apply, complete the form in full and return to the Old Town Art Center. Students must reapply for each session. The Old Town Art Center will make every effort to select a new student each session. If there are no new applicants and more than one returning applicant, names will be drawn via lottery. Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Recipients will be announced two weeks prior to the start of classes. Students must complete the entire 10-week session to be considered for future awards.

We want to be as accessible as possible and do not require any documentation proving a certain level of income to determine eligibility. The OTAC & Suzanne Flavin Scholarship Fund operate on a system of trust, asking you to evaluate your own financial situation and ability to pay tuition. Please note that all scholarships are half-tuition.
O I certify that I cannot afford art classes at the full tuition rate.
