The passing of Charlotte “Toddy” Price saddens everyone in the Louisville Visual Art family. An artist and a philanthropist who supported the LVA mission throughout her life, Charlotte led the capital campaign to renovate the Louisville Water Tower in 1978-79 so the Art Center Association could move in and grow its programming. It was a crucial transition in the history of our organization and we could not have done it without her.
Sculptor Ed Hamilton shared these thoughts with us:
"Dear lord, Charlotte Price was a wonderful person as well as a great artist sculptor.
When I had no work and no paycheck, she put me to work so I could earn money to feed my family.
I will never forget her kindness during those lean times.
And to the family - your mom was the best!
Love you, Charlotte."
Charlotte Price with sculptor Ed Hamilton in 2009:
Our Academy-level Painting II class builds upon instruction from Drawing and Painting I, focusing on the study of portraits and still life utilizing both acrylic and oil paints. The curriculum provides opportunities for experimentation with painting on a variety of different textures and provides further knowledge of a variety of tools, including palette knives and specialty brushes. This course is a comprehensive study of the principals of composition, staging, line, pattern, value, tone, and color theories. Emphasis is placed on the creative process from concept to completed work.
Instructor: Sunny Ra
Scenes from Saturday morning CFAC with Miss Annette at Douglass Community Center:
We started our day with drawing experiments, such as contour drawing and turning our pictures upside down to draw, utilizing observation skills. The students then continued with their upside-down drawings and finished them off with pastels and gorgeous color!
