On Monday, October 22, Charles visited Lakeview Academy, a private K-12 school in Gainesville, Georgia, and presented an oil painting demonstration to the AP Studio Art, Painting, and Art Exploration classes. Charles worked from a still-life and kept the full room informed and entertained for most of the afternoon.
The school's weekly parent email included this wonderful little blurb the following week:
The Upper School Visual Arts classes had a fantastic painting workshop last week, conducted by guest artist Charles Young Walls. Students, faculty and staff were in attendance to watch and listen to Mr. Walls as he painted and lectured for two and a half hours. Trained at the Art Students League in NY, Walls spoke with witty passion as he lectured on art history, painting fundamentals, and principles of light and space. We are already planning for him to return for another workshop next year.
Many thanks to Upper School Art Teacher Clayton Santiago for the photo.
