Contributed | Beacon Former Coshocton art teacher to host showcase of former students COSHOCTON - Myrtle Beall taught art at Coshocton High School for 34 years, retiring in 2018. Highly regarded and much appreciated by the community, it was no surprise that the Pomerene Center of the Arts approached Beall to do a retirement show. She instead suggested a showcase featuring the collective works of her former students, a desire she had long-held and one that speaks to her supportive nature. Beall discovered her love of art at the age of three. Anything and everything provided endless opportuni- ties to be creative: Coloring books, molding clay, paper dolls fashioned from photographs within the Sears catalogue. Encouraged by a family whose members had their own artistic abilities, Beall fl ourished in the loving and welcoming world that art provided. At the suggestion of her own high school art teacher, Beall began to entertain the idea of becoming an art teacher herself. Once that vision became a reality, her youthful art experiences deeply infl uenced her teach- ing philosophy. It was made clear to her ‘kids’ (she Proud to serve the people of Coshocton and surrounding communities since 1896!

It was ok to be playful, it was ok to make messes and mistakes, it was ok to ask what if and why? Not only was it ok, it was encouraged. Like all great teachers, the main goal of Beall was not simply to create artists, but to develop the whole person. Someone who could solve problems, take risks, accept challenges. Someone who could work well with others and never stopped being creative. Her lessons incorporated these important understandings and she developed starter topics around them. At one point, a few students began to refer them as ‘Beallisms’ and from that, a show was born. On Saturday, April 27, the Pomerene Center of the Arts will pay tribute to this inspirational and infl u- ential teacher. Th e Art of Beallism is an alumni show featuring the works of Beall’s former ‘kids’. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. Th ere is no admission price, al- though donations are appreciated.
