Local entrepreneur and artist Ken Cooper will be teaching Drawing at West Shore Community College’s downtown Manistee campus this winter semester.
After the fifty-year retrospective of his art last summer, Ken Cooper says, “I’m happy to be able to teach drawing at the newest WSCC facility, and I’m thrilled to be the first art instructor in what I hope will be a growing college presence in Manistee.”
Participating students will learn drawing techniques through observation and will explore formal elements such as line, shape, value, space and texture. They will also develop compositional skills through a variety of practices and expand their understanding of different drawing materials.
The class is part of Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) and credits earned in this class will transfer into most art and design departments at MTA participating colleges and universities.
“We are very excited to bring art classes directly into our communities and especially into downtown Manistee. Art, culture and food are some of the most important draws of the downtown, and we look forward to contributing to this through our art class offerings, said WSCC’s Associate Professor of Visual Arts, Eden Ünlüata-Foley. “We invite everyone of all ages and experiences to come and join Manistee’s own Ken Cooper at our location on River Street.”
