The Great Draw Visual Arts Scholarship

The Great Draw Street Art Competition was established in 2011 by Outside the Lines Art Gallery co-owners, Connie Twining and Stormy Mochal.  The event continues to be a fundraiser for The Great Draw Visual Art Scholarships which are awarded annually to local high school graduates attending either a two or four year college and pursuing a degree in the visual or graphic arts or art education.  Since its inception, over $17,000 has been awarded.


The 2024 scholarships will be awarded to one student from each Dubuque High School, one scholarship will be awarded to a student graduating from a high school in Jo Daviess County, IL and now one NICC Community College Student studying Graphic Design will also receive a scholarship. 


Congrats To Our 2023 Scholarship Recipients!!

"My favorite medium is fibers. Specifically sewing and crocheting. I love types of art that are wearable in everyday life."

"I’ve always been very passionate about art, even in elementary school I would always check out step-by-step drawing books from my school's library."

"I know no matter what that I want to do something with art... the path I’m leaning towards at the moment is becoming a tattoo artist but you never know what may happen!"
