Art League Houston tries to keep the cost of our programs as affordable as possible — but if you need help, we have scholarship assistance available each semester. In honor of longtime Art League Houston Instructor, Cholla, Art League now offers limited tuition assistance for classes and workshops to adult students who demonstrate financial need and an interest in visual art. Based on available funds and class size restrictions, applicants may be granted a tuition scholarship. Before submitting an application, please view the current or upcoming class schedule on our website or ask at the front desk to request a catalog. Tuition assistance ranges from 25-90%.


Scholarships are for one class or workshop per applicant per quarter with a maximum of two scholarships per year. A separate scholarship form must be submitted for each applicant and for each quarter. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need and a demonstrated interest in visual art.

How to Apply

Complete the online scholarship application form below. Scholarship applications are due Sunday, August 21, 2016 for the Fall 2016 Quarter. Recipients will be notified by email in the weeks following this deadline.

Payment Procedures

Scholarships cover tuition only. Recipients are responsible for any supplies or fees (i.e. - model fees, lab fees, materials fees). If receiving a scholarship, any balances on an account must be paid at the time of registration. Scholarship money and/or scholarship applications cannot be transferred from one class to another unless the assigned class is cancelled for any reason.
