The Northeast Kingdom Craft Fair is one of my favorites! You really have to be there to appreciate the many arts and crafts and visit with the very fine artists who create them. The date is almost here again ~ November 25 from 9 am to 3 pm.  Have a snack at their concession stand! The proceeds this year will benefit an Orphanage in Guatemala   ”Shadow of His Wings Orphanage”.

I hope to see you on the 25th at Lyndon State College and Northeast Kingdom Craft Fair! You won’t be sorry!


Painted buckets are FOREVER!

By camilla @ 3:01 pm

Here’s a memory from the Wooden Horse Arts Guild in 2007.  We raised $$$ to help the North Troy Fire Department and so many people joined in!  Here is my granddaughter-only 6 and painting a bucket which auctioned at $40.00.  Neva is pretty artistic and was excited when her bucket was helping the Fire Department!  That was a great day! You can see more about the buckets on the archives pages of

Art isn’t just a throw-away class…it’s a subject that can lead to a meaningful career for creative students and it comes in many forms.  If you  have true talent,  and the ability to express a passion for your medium of choice in each project you take on…. Maybe you are doing that already? Well then, you’re already on your way toward a successful future doing something you love. Might as well get a little financial aid to help you along!

Art scholarships run the gamut from drawing to painting to photography to design and even include art of the culinary, musical and literary varieties. The purpose of the Camilla Mead Arts Education Scholarship Fund is to provide funding for any of the above and to enable youth and adults to enhance their personal growth and education in the areas of music, arts and crafts.

Applications are accepted from Vermont residents from ages 16 and up to participate in education in the arts, workshops, lessons, equipment, supplies. Current round of  up to $500.00 will be closed to applicants on Dec. 1st, 2017.

Here is where you will find stories of the winners and the Scholarship application!

We look forward to receiving your scholarship application!  Here is where to find it:

Visiting Ann

By camilla @ 4:42 pm

A few years ago, Ann Young became one of the Wooden Horse Arts Guild Sponsors:  We are grateful to Ann –  her sponsorship is helping artists and craftsmen of many ages to go forward in their travels to help them become an artist. Thank you, Ann!

Since I am a little bit of a home-bodynow, I took the time to browse Ann’s “Blogspot”  ….. It’s All About Color – Nature, People and  Paintings….”   Her paintings are unique and interesting and unforgettable.   I guess that one of the reasons I am so taken with her art is that she never stops studying and learning….Her work is always fresh and different!  I love Ann’s Blogspot, especially when she begins a new painting – here’s the one she is beginning now:Ann Young

Visit Ann’s website…You’ll see where her work is shown, paintings and more. These are two of my favorites!
