Fine Arts Banner

The arts are among society's most compelling and effective paths for developing 21st century skills.  Through fine arts education, students learn to solve problems and make decisions, think creatively, and articulate a vision.  ϳԹs gain a creative and competitive edge because fine arts education gives them the ability to imagine what might be possible. In addition, art classes give students increased self-esteem, self-discipline, and the responsibility to complete a task from start to finish.

Important Information

Music Scholarship

The Morning Music Club of Macon sponsors this award, annually. The purpose of this $4,000 scholarship award is to encourage and reward achievement and excellence in musical performance. The Maerz Award was started in 1969 and is named for Professor Joseph Maerz, a member of the Wesleyan College faculty, who was widely known as a teacher, music critic and performer.  In 2021, we were able to add the $2000 Joyce Martin Award in memory of our beloved member and faithful supporter of the competition.  Winners of both awards are expected to continue music studies in college, though it is not required to major in music.
