Norma Hongisto Fine Art Scholarship

Special thanks to the Norma Hongisto Fine Art Scholarship at the Peralta Colleges Foundation for their generous contribution of prizes for the exhibition.

Norma Hongisto had a lifelong passion for art, starting as a young child growing up in Spencer, Iowa.  Her great ambition was to study art at the University of Iowa, a dream she later fulfilled.  The University of Iowa chose several of her paintings for a traveling art show to attract students to its art program. The art show was exhibited in high schools throughout Iowa.  In 1949, she graduated with a BA in Art from the University of Iowa.  She then traveled to Europe (Italy, Spain) to experience European culture and art.  Upon return, she worked at the NYU bookstore in New York and later she worked in Texas.  In 1957, Norma moved to California to continue to pursue her interest in art.  She attended San Francisco State College (now San Francisco State University) and worked towards a credential to teach art in California high schools. 

Norma paused her artwork and education to marry her husband Don and parent her three children.  As her children reached school-age, her interest in art was revitalized.  Starting in the 1970s, she took art classes at the Berkeley Adult School, Merritt College, College of Alameda, Laney College, Berkeley Senior Center, and Feather River College.  She loved the Laney College art program, where she studied under the well-respected June Steingart.  Norma continued her artwork well into her mid-80s (circa 2010).  She loved acrylics, oil, pastel, and watercolor painting and making ceramic bird houses and planters.

Norma was proud of her art pieces and filled both the house and garden of her long-term home in Berkeley, California with her work.

It is with sincere generosity that the Norma Hongisto Scholarship fund was created in order to support future Art students at Laney college in their careers and studio practices.  Awards will be presented annually to selected students as part of the annual juried student exhibition.
