Arts Champion Design 2022.jpg

What started as a 42-year old GNBAC tradition has blossomed into a movement to help young area artists with their dreams of pursuing art!


This scholarship fund was inspired by many past honorees who were Arts Champions. In 2022, a dear friend of GNBAC and true advocate for the Arts, Mr. Bennie Walter Bock II, passed away, encouraging us to carry on his mission. Bennie's amazing professional journey working in the Texas Legislature and keeping the Arts alive in New Braunfels inspired us to continue that mission of advocating and encouraging young artists to pursue their passion.

Area high school seniors who study the Arts and hope to pursue Art in college, as a profession, or in education are encouraged to apply--this GNBAC Art Scholarship Fund was established with the intention of assisting those who need a little help with that dream.
