PLEASE SUPPORT the emerging art talents of these young artists by attending their exhibition this spring as they visually express themselves and the greater community around them.

Some of Charles’ former students have become professional artists, such as Don Moore and Steve Axtel, while others have made art a serious pursuit or hobby.

It was a great field trip for the students to connect with local art in their community and to learn about the art history of their town.
