ROCK HILL, S.C. — Winthrop University fine arts students have once again received distinction, this time from the South Carolina Art Education Association (SCAEA).

Freshman Sarah Rubinstien received the association’s scholarship while graduate student Laura Zellmer won the Liz Smith-Cox Scholarship. Department of Fine Arts alumna Toni Davis ’11 was named SCAEA’s Promising Young Professional.

The $1,000 Liz Smith-Cox Scholarship and the $500 association scholarship are awarded to those who aspire to become art educators and increase the need for quality art educators. Requirements included a CD with at least 12 images of art work and a narrative describing the applicant’s personal goals in art education.

Rubinstien, of Rock Hill, S.C., Simpsonville, S.C., resident Zellmer and Summerville High School teacher Davis were acknowledged this past month at the SCAEA Staff Development Conference in Myrtle Beach. This year’s theme was “A Room With A View: Engaging the Teacher, the Artist and the Student.”

Associate Professor of Fine Arts Shaun Cassidy and Department of Fine Arts Chair Tom Stanley were featured artists/presenters at the conference.

Winthrop will host the SCAEA’s Western Region Mini Conference, tentatively scheduled for Jan. 26, 2013, and participate in the S.C. National Art Honors Society Annual Meeting on March 23.
