Friedolin Kessler (1913-1995) was a resident camp artist of the Missouri (and later) San Jose, CA CCC where he remained a prolific artist and teacher. His talent became clear early in life: When Friedolin was 12 he won admission and tuition to Washington University for an 8 foot by 4 foot chalk drawing he made on his classroom’s chalk board. Friedolin was accomplished in oil painting, watercolor, charcoal, linoleum cuts, photography, and wood mosaics. His entire life was about art.
