PAAM is pleased to offer The Robyn Watson Scholarship to eligible recipients on an annual basis. This scholarship honors significant members of the PAAM family and is supported through generous donations.


The Robyn Watson Scholarship is offered to an interested student, fifteen to twenty-two years of age. The scholarship was created to honor the memory of the late Director Robyn Watson’s dedication to quality education at PAAM. Scholarship funds are provided to attend one Museum School workshop. The scholarship is need-based (you wouldn’t be able to attend if you weren’t receiving a scholarship.)

Choose from week-long or multi-week workshops including painting, drawing from the model, sculpture, and white-line woodblock printmaking. Workshops are offered year-round, are generally 1 day to 1 week long, or may meet once a week over a period of weeks. Each workshop is limited in size to maintain a supportive and engaging art-making environment.

Applicants are asked to write a letter about themselves, stating their interest in a class, with alternate class choices (as some classes may be filled and closed to enrollment), along with information on financial need. Send letters to Lynn Stanley, Curator of Education, PAAM, 460 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA 02657, email to or fax 508-487-4372. Applications accepted on a rolling basis until the scholarship is awarded.


PAAM is grateful for the generous donors who fund these efforts to continue developing future generations of Provincetown artists.
