The community is invited to join St. Louis Community College-Wildwood for a scholarship fundraiser, Wednesday, Oct. 25. All proceeds raised from this event will support the STLCC-Wildwood Scholarship Fund.
This scholarship fund is a new program established this year to commemorate the campus’ 10th anniversary. All proceeds raised will directly benefit students in need who attend the Wildwood campus.
Students, employees and community members have three ways to participate in the scholarship fundraiser.
1. Register for a Painting Party
On Wednesday, Oct. 25, STLCC-Wildwood will host two painting parties at the Wildwood Pub and Grill, 17253 New College Avenue in Wildwood. The painting sessions are scheduled for 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the restaurant’s party room.
The painting sessions will be led by Sean Frye, a professional artist and STLCC-Wildwood instructor. Frye holds a Master of Arts degree in Drawing and Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Sculpture from Fontbonne University. In addition to teaching a variety of design, drawing and painting courses at STLCC, Frye regularly hosts painting parties at a local “paint and sip” studio.
The cost is $35 per person. This fee includes all art supplies, step-by-step instructions from a professional artist and appetizers. Guests 21 and over are welcome to purchase $4 house wines with a valid I.D. To register, click here.
