Mukilteo artist Dimitriy Grisenko shows his original paintings at the Waterfront Art Festival on Aug. 3. Gritsenko was a 2012 Mukilteo Art Guild's scholarship recipient from Mariner High School. He is now a student at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

Two Mukilteo School District students were awarded scholarships this year: Amber Gray from Mariner and Larisa Hockert from ACES High School. The recipients are also allowed a booth at the annual Mukilteo art festival. Gritsenko elected to have his booth this year.

Each year the guild helps fund continuing education in the arts for graduating seniors at any of the three area high schools. Proceeds from the Waterfront Art Festival and other guild events go to the scholarship fund.
