Chuck McLachlan

Chuck McLachlan is an instructor with an articulate and entertaining style of teaching art with the soul of a true storyteller. A former NFL football player, he dispels the notion that there might be anything called a typical artist. Whether the subject is football or the latest book on Picasso, he brings thoughtful and colorful enthusiasm to the classroom discussion. His work hangs in many private and corporate collections including R.J. Reynolds, Virginia Tech and the SAS Institute.

Chuck has a professional background in Commercial and Graphic Art and retired from a career as an Advertising Executive. He now focuses his artistic talents on the finer points of painting as a teacher and lecturer. He is actively teaching workshops from Alaska to Florida. Chuck has a steady following of students who praise his nurturing and encouragement in their art endeavors. He has developed the ability to condense the essence of the subject cleverly and simply, leaving the studentís imagination intact to fill in the details.

Chuck brings humor and storytelling to his classes and workshops. His emphasis is on design, form and color, keeping shapes simple. His purpose is to entertain the viewer and to create a mood or feeling about the subject matter. A painter of oils and watercolors, landscapes, florals and portraits, he loves both mediums. "Watercolor is very spontaneous, it's exactly what it says, water and color, and with that, it's easier to create that special mood." Chuck believes there is always something new to learn and loves to see his students learn and take a chance with their painting.

We are sure you will enjoy and appreciate Chuckís unique ability to convey his easy to understand instruction and genuine sincerity in assisting students like yourself in reaching your goals as a watercolor artist.
