Georga Smith Williams '60 (Studio Art) Georga writes: "Since 1960 I have used my history of Fine Arts while a docent at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. My classes at W&M gave me a head start in training to be a docent. It was absolutely the most fulfilling and fun volunteer work that I have done. I was a docent for over 20 years. Since then I have taken painting classes....oil painting....and Mr. Thorne's oil painting classes at W&M gave me a firm background. Painting is my avocation but occasionally I manage to sell a piece here and there. My travels to many places too have accentuated my love and appreciation of art .All in all I feel so fortunate to have had these opportunities." (Oct, 2013)
