Red Door 104 and Southside Community Development Alliance (SCDA) recently announced the expansion of the Quentin Wilhelmi Youth Art Scholarship in a press release. “This needs-based scholarship provides full tuition to Red Door 104’s youth art program,” the release went on to say. The program offers students a chance to discover new artists, mediums, styles and just have a great time being creative. The 2018-19 recipient class includes two students from Prince Edward County Elementary School and three students from Prince Edward County Middle School.
Audrey Sullivan Founder of Red Door 104 and her father-in-law, Quentin Wilhelmi chose to establish a scholarship for children with a passion for art who might not be afforded extracurricular creative outlets. According to the release Sullivan acknowledged all donors, both current and past, that have made it possible for three children to be put through the program to date. Sullivan is excited and very optimistic that the program will grow with the help of SCDA.
The release further cited “Dr. Jamaal Johnston Executive Director of SCDA said the opportunity to introduce art to our local students is a critical part of their academic and personal development and he looks forward to working with Ms. Sullivan to bring this opportunity to as many students as possible.”
