A Pan Story

Paintings on the development of the steelpan



 Joseph Aldwin Charles

Joseph Aldwin Charles (pictured left) was born  January 1948 in Penal, San Francique, Trinidad.  When his family moved to Toco, he completed his primary education at Cumana Toco Seven-Day Adventist Primary School.  It was here that he gained an appreciation of what would become his passion - art.  Because of his talent shown, this very young budding artist was selected by the school's principal to do a special workshop designed for the art teachers of all the schools in that region.
