The Gillette Scholarship Fund
Henry S. Gillette, an accomplished artist, author, teacher, and mentor, was a devoted participant at Garrison Art Center for many years and upon his death left a bequest to the Art Center in support of the arts education program. Mr. Gillette was recognized throughout his life for his talents in a variety of media, including painting, book illustration, and teaching.
Garrison Art Center is happy to be able to offer financial support to students in need to offset the cost of summer arts education and classes throughout the year. Assistance is available to all students from children to adult. The application is a simple form with a statement of need that serves as an affidavit.
