Art in Action is an organization that assists artists towards becoming entrepreneurs, by encouraging a social community for artists within Burlington. As well, Art in Action provides exposure for the artists within the Burlington community. Art in Action organizes and promotes a weekend Burlington Studio Tour on the first weekend of November, where juried participants showcase their work to the public in their own studio locations.

Annual Scholarships:
In 2012, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Art in Action we initiated an annual scholarship to encourage young artists in Burlington pursuing a post secondary education in the fine arts. We were able to offer 2 scholarships of $1000.00 each to two Burlington students. In 2013, 2014 and 2015 we presented one Scholarship of $1,500.00, and in 2016, 2017 and 2018 we presented one Scholarship of $1,000 to a talented student.

The $1000.00 scholarship is to be awarded to the most deserving student and presented at the school’s commencement ceremonies. The student is invited to participate in an exhibit at the Art Gallery of Burlington in the fall, the Burlington Studio Tour the first weekend of November and will receive media attention.
