ABOUT the Art Scholarship

In 1977, the Palmer Lake Art Group [PLAG] began the Art Scholarship specifically to encourage and support student artists who choose the visual arts as a career path after graduation from local School District 38.  This art scholarship is more than an award for doing very well in visual arts.  It is to support those with a visual arts career path.


The members of PLAG work to build funds for this scholarship with shows and scholarship donations.  Since 1977, PLAG has awarded over $85,000 in awards to local, graduating, young artists.


ABOUT the Palmer Lake Art Group, established 1967
