I want to thank Chauston and Whitney for allowing me to post their art. Both of them were great students in my ENG 102 class.
Whitney Trisler: Art Education Major
One of the great aspects of working at a college is seeing great artists created. In my 102 class, Whitney Trisler is such an artist. She is an art education major, and this semester I’ve seen at least five of her charcoal pieces featured on the walls of Delta’s Eastgate campus. Here is a charcoal portrait Whitney created of one of my favorite artists–Bob Dylan, songwriter, musician, poet, and American icon. She is an excellent writer as well as an artist. This tells me she has her eyes and mind open to the world, as devoted artists tend to do.
Chauston Mason: Writer, Artist, and Student
Chauston is not an art major, he just likes to create good art. I found him to be a diligent and interesting student. Here is an image of a chair he painted. He managed to create wonderful depth in it. I am sure Chauston will do well at whatever he does.
