Visual Arts Department Annual Publication,
Main Entry: Visual Arts Department
Volume: Annual Accrual
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.
