New Scholarships Available for Winter Art Programs for Older Youth

Two new older youth art programs are being offered by OSU Extension Service and their partner, Art Accelerated this winter. Programs will start the second week in January, 2018. Cost is $45 for each program, but the OSU Extension Service just recently learned we have $20 scholarships available upon request for anyone who has not registered due to the cost for the older youth programs. To qualify for the scholarship, fill out the online registration, but stop before you pay the fee online. You will need to pay the remaining $25 balance with cash or check at the OSU Extension Office in Tillamook. Contact the OSU Extension Office, 503-842-3433 if you need assistance with completing the registration.
