Bainbridge Island Studio Tour gives back to Bainbridge
The artists in the Bainbridge Island Studio Tour donate a percent of their sales each year to local charities. In 2013, the tour presented checks for more than $900 to Helpline House and Stephens House, which are the two charities that the artists voted on earlier that year. The money is typically used for art supplies, art programs, and general operating costs. More than 60 artists contributed to this optional donation program.
Another $522 was donated by the artists to the new Youth Art Award, the studio tour’s own program that will award cash prizes this spring to three local high school students that are currently a junior or senior.
Students who qualify can apply online by downloading the application form from the Studio Tour’s website at www.bistudiotour.com.
The deadline for the Youth Art Award is March 28. Winners will be announced at the May 15 BHS Spring Arts Festival awards ceremony.
