Art isn’t just a throw-away class and neither is the study of crafts…they are subjects that can lead to a meaningful career for creative students, whether a highschooler or a Mom who has the ability to take on a project and wants to go further. If you have talent, and the ability to express a passion for your medium of choice in each project you take on, well, you’re doing something you love. Might as well get a little financial aid to help you along!
The Wooden Horse Arts Guild offers their Camilla Mead Arts Education scholarships to help with funds for drawing to painting to photography to design, and even music and literary arts. Our scholarships are specific to those who live in Vermont and are ages 16 through those older adults who want to continue their artistic talent.
Activities supported by the fund include, but are not limited to, workshops, private or group classes, performance, instrument rental or purchase and acquisition of art supplies. Applications and all information are at: http://www.woodenhorsearts.com/scholarships.shtml You will also see the recipients of some of our scholarships.

We are excited about his plan to join us here in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The Kingdom was identified as National Geographic Geo-Tourism Landmark. You can check out this website for more information on the NEK.
While weather may be a factor in some of our plans it also will offer us great opportunities at the end of January. Some of our stops will include the local culture such as a photo shoot inside Currier’s Quality Market where we find a local country store that includes everything one needs as well as a 948 pound moose along with many other wildlife that have been preserved and are on display.
We hope to spend a bit of time out on South Bay with the ice fishing shanties and capture an essence of more than a hobby but an economic way of winter life.
The ice castle on Lake Memphremagog will be another photo op.
St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church in Newport is a history lesson in visuals.
You will feel like you are inside a corner of Versailles, France.
Built in 1903 ….The pews and kneelers are original, but have been renovated and refurbished. All of the paintings on the walls and ceilings were done by a local artist, a Mr. N. O. Rochon, who obtained permission to recreate the works of French artist Tissaud.
A visit to the Haskell Free Library on the Canadian Border will provide an architectural opportunity as well. Inside the library you can take each other’s pictures with one foot in the USA and the other in Canada.
These are highlights and not all of what we will see and capture.
Sleigh ride, fiddling, country dinner, and more.
