Youth Grants Thank You

Thank you for supporting this important program!


Poole BarkerSCA’s Memorial Fund for Education was established in 2014 as part of SCA’s ongoing educational mission. The initial funding was given in memory of Poole Barker, a young exhibiting member of SCA, who came from a family of artists and creators, and was a dedicated artist in her own right. We hope that Poole’s spirit of creativity, joy and exploration will live on in these grants

Since its creation, the fund has grown and been sustained by generous gifts. Most recently a major gift was received in memory of Pamela Lovell, an artist, creative force and lifelong educator. Originally from England, Mrs. Lovell spent most of her adult life in New Jersey, where she taught both children and adults, and passed on her love of making. It would have brought her great joy to support this youth grant, because arts education meant so much to her.
