I recently came across this photo of retired art professor John Clovis in the 1980 edition of "The Mound" - Fairmont State University's (then Fairmont State College's) student yearbook. The caption reads: "JOHN CLOVIS, associate professor of art, helps students individually in painting class for oils and acrylics."
I've written several times about John Clovis (here, here, here and here) and his impact on my time as a student at Fairmont State. Very happy that I came across this photo taken nearly 20 years before I met him myself, and glad to see that his active approach to teaching was his approach then too. Many students benefited from his instruction, and Fairmont State was fortunate he was such a large part of the department.
If you were a student of John Clovis, or a similar instructor that impacted your career, feel free to share them below.
