(St. Charles, Mo., March 21, 2023) Mosaics Fine Art Festival recently opened the application process for its Joyce Rosen Founder’s Scholarship. Missouri high school students, who are eligible for nomination by their art teachers, will be selected to showcase their art at the 28th annual event. The deadline for submitting one piece of art per student is Sept. 1.

The Joyce Rosen Founder’s Scholarship tent will exhibit all artwork, and three scholarship prizes will be awarded by a professional judge. Students can submit original work in a variety of media categories including clay, drawing, glass, leather, metal, pastel, oil/acrylic, photography, printmaking, sculpture, watercolor, and wood.

Mosaics Fine Art Festival – which invites only 100 artists to showcase and sell their wares at this exclusive juried event – is held Fri., Sept. 15 through Sun., Sept. 17. The family-friendly event, which is free and open to the public, will be held along several blocks of North Main St. in Historic St. Charles, Mo. where more than 30 restaurants and over 75 shops are located.

“This is a unique opportunity for high school artists to have their work on display at a major arts festival,” said Mosaics Fine Art Festival’s vice president Melinda Nolan. “It is a huge honor for the student, the student’s art teacher, and the student’s school to be recognized for their dedication to the importance of fine arts in our society.”

Mosaics Fine Art Festival features live musical entertainment, a Children’s Village for hands-on art experiences, and the Mary Hediger Memorial Art Shop for Kids where children ages 14 and younger can buy professional artwork. The Artists for Adoption Pet Pavilion is open to families interested in adopting pets from local rescue organizations.
