Winton Woods Senior Wins Memorial Art Scholarship | Arts & Culture
FOREST PARK, OH (FOX19) - Winton Woods High School senior Courtney Irby won a $1200 scholarship for his Impressionistic landscape at the Taft Museum of Art’s Artists Reaching Classrooms (ARC) Awards ceremony on Wednesday, May 2. The award “is even more special because it is a ‘memorial’ scholarship in remembrance of one of the docents at the Taft Museum,” said Winton Woods High School art teacher Carol Becci-Youngs. “The docents chose Courtney's art piece because they believed his art exemplified the landscape collection at the Taft, as well as being an amazing piece of art.”
Five scholarships were awarded that evening. There were 11 schools that participated, and 77 art pieces in the show.
