An important aspect of the Seacoast Artists Guild Mission is to support youth programs which feature education and experiences involving the visual arts.
The Guild focuses many of its fundraising efforts toward the support of it’s youth programs which include exhibition opportunities and scholarships.
The Cushman Scholarship Fund, named after the late Walter and MarcelleCushman, who pioneered the efforts of the Guild’s youth programs, annually offers $1,000 scholarships to an Horry County high school graduating senior and a Georgetown County high school graduating senior.
The two scholarship recipients must plan to major in the visual arts and attend an accredited institution of higher learning. The Guild’s youth programs strive to build relationships with the community, local public school and university administrators, teachers and students.
