Academy at Charlemont arts scholarship started
CHARLEMONT — The family and friends of Eleanor Lazarus, an educator and a supporter of the arts in education, have established The Eleanor (Ellie) Lazarus Memorial Fund for the Arts at The Academy at Charlemont, to honor her passions and her fondness for the school.
The fund will support the Studio Block arts program at the Academy and enable the school to continue attracting visiting professional artists to work with students in a variety of media and disciplines.
A former Ashfield resident, Lazarus first became involved with the school as a guest artist-in-residence, working with an upper level art class.
She died in February 2013.
