Yourist Studio Gallery - Studio Scholarships

Our Stephen Kerr Mentor / Scholarship and Sis Warner Memorial Scholarship Funds are an essential part of our YSG community support. Learn here how you can donate to these funds and apply for assistance.

Stephen Kerr Mentor / Scholarship Fund

Stephen KerrWe dearly miss our friend and fellow potter, Stephen Kerr, for his joie de vivre, his friendly welcomes to students and customers as they came through the door, his teacherly advice to all who would ask, his being the first to know about current events, his wide acquaintanceship with people, his love of delicious food, his artistic sensibilities, and his great orange clothes. Stephen lived his life to its fullest. We have all been inspired by his ways.

All donations to this fund help create community programming as well as enrichment to individual students in need of extra support.

Sis Warner Scholarship Fund

Sis WarnerIn May of 2008 we lost our dear friend, Phyllis Warner. Those of us who were fortunate to know her, called her “Sis.” Sis was a life-long “student” of ceramics, who always found time to take a pottery class in her busy life of gathering with friends, caring for those she was closest to, volunteering at the “Thrift Shop,” golfing, spending time at the family farm, and planning the next fishing trip. Not to mention the beautiful scarves she crocheted and the amazing baskets she wove.

We award the Sis Warner Memorial Scholarship to help defray the tuition cost of a class for enthusiastic students with demonstrated need and a strong desire to begin or continue their education in ceramics.
