High school art teacher’s works featured in Caswell art exhibition

By: Carolyn VanBrocklin

The Caswell Messenger – Melissa Walker, an art teacher in Randolph County, NC, has always loved art.  As a child, since she wasn’t allowed to ride horses so she settled for drawing them.

Walker studied art at East Carolina University and graduated in 1972.  After several year’s hiatus from NC, during which time she married another artist and pursued a graduate degree in painting and printmaking, she returned to North Carolina to teach high school level art.

Her students often take her art classes all four years.  She says that she does art almost all the time, both teaching and thinking of ways to assist her students.

Walker does take time for herself to pursue her own personal art.  She gets inspiration from landscapes and her works often feature characteristics of landscapes realistically or in abstract form.  Her current art also has nautical themes.

Walker’s exhibit will be hanging in the Caswell County Civic Center through Dec. 16.
