PRISCILLA HODGES SCHOLARSHIP

The Priscilla Hodges Scholarship Fund was established in the late 1980s in memory of Melvin Village resident artist Priscilla Hodges Saunders. Hodges Saunders was an early member of GWAC who studied and painted local landscapes and New Hampshire points of interest. She attended special artists’ workshops around the region in her desire to continually expand her artistic knowledge and painting skills. Her enthusiasm and abundant energy encouraged and inspired many others to do the same. It is in this spirit that this Scholarship Fund is offered today.


The Fund is designed for adult applicants in the Lakes Region who wish to enhance their art education by participating in a special fine art workshop, seminar, or a continuing education course. After completion of their coursework, recipients are asked to present to GWAC membership about their experiences and share examples of their work.

The fund also partially underwrites seminars by master artists covering traditional 2-D media. Since 2005, twelve workshops have been held, to great acclaim from participants. General inquires about the scholarship fund should be directed to info@wolfeboroarts.org.
