Ani Art Academy Apprentices receive 2012 ARC Scholarships

The Ani Art Academies is very pleased to announce four of our apprentices from the Ani Art Academy Waichulis are winners of the 2012 Art Renewal Center’s Annual Scholarship Competition.
Each year, The ARC Scholarship Fund awards emerging realist artists to help them continue their studies at ARC Approved Ateliers and
Schools. Out of a worldwide competition, 16 emerging artists were recipients of the scholarship, which is hailed by the ARC as one of their
most important programs. First placed winners received $3,500 and 2nd and 3rd place winners took home $1,800 and $1,000 respectively.
This year, the competition was judged by Frederick Ross, Founder and Chairman of the Art Renewal Center and Dr. Vern Swanson,
lecturer/scholar/writer and expert on 19th Century European Art and Russian Art through the 20th Century. For a full listing of winners,
