The Many Faces of Mr. Guyette [SIV488] 

4/28/17: For 37 years, Charles Guyette taught art and French to Vermont elementary students, high schoolers and some adults too. Known as a colorful and unique mustached character who yodeled on occasion, Mr. Guyette kept his students laughing while also sharing his love of art and life with them. Always a cheerleader, he used to tell his students that "There's never been anybody like you in the entire history of man, and that's why you're significant as an artist."

Decades ago, Eva was one of Mr. Guyette's art students at Lamoille Union High School in Hyde Park. She visits her favorite teacher at his home studio in Jeffersonville where, five years into his retirement, Mr. Guyette's portfolio is growing and his joie de vivre is intact.

Music: Kevin MacLeod, "Dvorak Polka" & "Run Amok" Richard Strauss, "Strauss Waltz Medley" Performed by US Air Force Band
