Organization Now Accepting Applications from those Wanting Support to Get Creative

Sedona Arts Center continues to diversify its workshops, develop new partnerships, and offer ways for you to get creative. 

This spring and summer, the nonprofit organization is offering dozens of workshops, classes, and retreats in painting, sculpture, writing, and even theatre. To include as many people as possible, and make it easy for Sedona to get creative, the Arts Center has expanded its Scholarship Fund and welcomes applications for financial support. 

“Part of our mission, and indeed our 60-year heritage, is to build a more artistic and creative community,” said Arts Center Operations Manager, Debbie Winslow. “Thousands of people come through our doors each month, and many of them need help for tuition and workshop costs. Our Scholarship Fund is available to everybody.”

The Arts Center's scholarship application is a simple form, and is available online or at the administrative offices in Uptown. Scholarship support applies to all class offerings for the tuition fees only, and is not applicable to any lodging or travel fees that may be incurred with specific classes.

Some upcoming notable classes include Plein Air Writing with Elizabeth Oakes, Fun with Art and Wine with Melanie and Brian Gold, and the Guerrilla Filmmaking Certificate Program, a four-week, unique boot camp program taught by Bryan Reinhart. Spring and Summer workshops are also planned with nationally-known instructors Shelby Keefe, Betty and Howard Carr, Kathryn Stats, Jan Sitts, Kurt Wenner, Julie Gilbert Pollard and Gretchen Lopez.

Arts Center Scholarships are also meant to support Sedona’s next generation of artists. Funding is now available for all upcoming summer camp programs, two-week sessions for 10 to 15 year olds, including instruction in filmmaking, ceramics, and visual arts.  

Sedona Arts Center is nonprofit organization dedicated to the creative life of Sedona and cultural opportunities for everyone. Year-round programs for the community encompass arts education, exhibitions, cultural celebrations and community partnerships, annual festivals, and much more.
