Watercolor artist Walton to demonstrate for WAA

International watercolor artist Doug Walton will be the guest artist for the Weatherford Art Association monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Monday.

The demonstration will be part of WAA’s monthly meeting at the Firehouse Gallery, 119 Palo Pinto St. Members are asked to bring their art works for critiques by Virginia Mayfield at 6 p.m. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. and guests are welcome.

Walton’s extraordinary childhood experience led to a profound sensitivity to nature, which is reflected in his art today. Raised in Carmen, Okla., he spent his formative years inflicted with a mysterious inability to communicate through speech. At the age of 16 he overcame his speech problem and began a unique adventure in life, which led to the discovery of a special talent and ability to communicate through the teaching of water media painting.

Over the years he has developed a powerful gift to open new worlds to others by teaching a system of creative thought through the medium of painting. After receiving his Bachelor of Architecture degree in 1995 from Oklahoma State University, Walton did graduate work while on a teaching fellowship and became Associate Professor of Architecture at Louisiana Tech University.

He took a watercolor workshop and subsequently taught watercolor classes as well as architecture. He has taught workshops throughout the United Sates and in countries around the world including Dubai, South Africa, India, Morocco, Indonesia, Guatemala, China and Europe.
