Our final Wednesday Afternoon Art Class for the winter was full of color.

Students began with their prints made in the previous class.

Everyone chose colors to create a pattern of color on their prints.

This required focus and concentration as every student created their own combinations of colors.

The Art Junction presents:

Don Moore

Military Artist

abadday

Don Moore always knew that he would be a military artist; just ask his former Willard High School art teacher, Mr. Charles Casto.

Soldier

          In 1968 Don left Willard, Ohio for the United States Marine Corps recruit depot at Parris Island, South Carolina. Upon completing boot camp and advanced combat training, he received the military occupation of illustrator/combat artist. Don served 16 ½ years in the Marine Corps before joining the Army in 1984 as an illustrator. Don retired from the military in 1989 with 22 ½ years of service.

Audie

Don’s military career was not limited to being an artist; he was also a drill instructor, presidential bodyguard, and non-commissioned officer in charge of graphic art centers and public affairs sections. These, as well as other military jobs, postings and travel experiences, helped Don build a variety of skills and life experiences.  Wherever Don was stationed, he pursued his passion for art through college and correspondence courses. He also attended many workshops and institutes such as Dynamic Graphics.

???????????????????????????????

Don has received many awards for his artistic skill, service and excellence. His most prized achievements are: induction into the Sgt. Audie Murphy Club, knighted into the Order of St. George, and commissioned an admiral in the Texas navy.
