An Art Scholarship Fundraiser!
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. Since its inception, over $15,000 has been awarded.
The 2023 scholarships will be awarded to one student from each Dubuque High School: Hempstead HS, and Wahlert Catholic HS.
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."
"After college I want to start my own business/label, but I'm not positive yet on what type of clothing I want to make yet."

"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!"
