A Nonprofit Organization That Celebrates the Arts


Delores Lash


From a humble beginning in 1986 through today, the board of directors works diligently to ensure the success of Central Florida’s Festival of the Arts Scholarships while successfully promoting our mission.

Our mission is to produce an outstanding juried show for the Lake Mary Heathrow Festival of the Arts, featuring National and International Artists and Contemporary Craftsman while raising scholarship money for graduating Seminole County High School Students. In doing so, we hope to stimulate, energize, and foster the arts within our local economy and beyond!
