The Paula Beaulieu Art Scholarship

Paula Frances Beaulieu 

(May 28, 1947 — January 24, 2014)

Paula obtained her B.S. degree from Lowell State University before obtaining her M.S. in Arts & Education at Florida Atlantic University. Her career included teaching grades 2 and 5 at Pearl St. School in Reading, Mass., author of children’s educational books, counselor and educational toy developer to name a few. Most notably, Paula was an art educator, running her own business teaching people of all ages to “Connect with Their Creativity” for over 15 years. Paula was an artist throughout her life, a legacy she brought forward from her mother Rita Casey.

After growing up in Methuen, Mass., Paula resided in Hollywood, Florida and Reading, Mass. (where she raised her two sons Dan and Matt) before moving to Salem, Mass., where she spent her remaining years. 

“Creativity occurs in the moment, and in the moment we are timeless.”

—The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron
