Biographical/Historical Note:
Although GMA and Woodward Academy supported a visual arts program in the 1960s and early 1970s, the activities and course offerings remained very small. With the support of President William R. Brewster and the construction of the Richardson Hall Fine Arts Center in 1976, the visual arts program began to grow significantly. For a number of years the school actually offered a Fine Arts diploma. Choral Director Alan McClung was instrimental in promoting the overall art program by expanding course offerings. After a series of early department chairpersons in the late 1970s, including longtime English teacher Cleo Hudson, Chris Greenway became the chairman of the department and coordinator of the Visual Arts program. Under decades of Greenway’s leadership, the visual arts flourished at WA and the program became well known throughout the state. Many students won prestigious art awards and dozens went to on to study art in colleges.
For many years Greenway and his art students were involved in the student literary magazines. In 2002, the Visual Arts Department began to publish their own magazine of photography and art.
