The Art Junction’s mission is to bring the community together for creative experiences, and this field trip really began to allow students to see a larger world beyond their classroom.

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.
