PINELLAS PARK – The Pinellas Park Art Society awarded two $1,500 scholarships – the first in its history – to two local students at a June 1 reception at Park Station.

The recipients of the scholarships were Anna Cooke and Gabriella Schmid.

Cooke, a graduating senior from Osceola High School, is going into her freshman year at Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers as a studio art major. She has participated in numerous local art shows, among them the Mainsail Student Show and the Surrealist Show at the Dali Museum. She also has 130 volunteer hours with the Morean Art Center in St. Petersburg, and has done photography for weddings.

Schmid is currently enrolled in her second year of college at the University of Florida as an art major. Passionate about ceramics, graphite pencil drawings, and watercolor, she has been taking art classes throughout her high school and college years, and has her own art studio. She designed her senior class T-shirt, paints murals for her synagogue, and creates events in the University’s RUB Arts Committee.

The scholarship was open to any student attending a Pinellas County School who had intentions of pursuing a visual arts education in a school of higher learning and to any Pinellas County resident currently enrolled in a college-level visual arts program.

There were a total of 14 applicants, which the judges narrowed down to two. The scholarship was based on artistic abilities.
