Island Artisans is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1978 to raise scholarship funds for young artists within the community. The holiday market is the primary fundraiser for those scholarships. It is a juried show and sale by San Juan County artists, with each participating artist donating 10% of their sales to support the scholarship program. Additional donations are welcome. The event is sponsored by the following companies; King’s Market, Maya’s Legacy Whale Watching, Browne’s Home Center, Friday Harbor Freight, Harbor Rental & Saw Shop, Vinny’s, Dockside Treasures, and San Juan Island Roasters. This is a great opportunity to support our students while supporting our local artists, designers, and craftspeople!
There was $12,000 worth of scholarships awarded in June to 7 seniors from 3 different high schools.
