Art is alive and well at Alpena Community College.
As News Editor Barbara Woodham recently reported, ACC’s fine arts program is booming. Students in the program had nothing but good things to say to Woodham about the offers.
“I’m completely learning something,” Angel Burcar, a freshman liberal arts student, told Woodham. “In other classes you just memorize things for the test, but with that you can really see the progress on paper.”
“(Art Instructor Jason Allen Pemberton) is taking it to a whole new level,” said art major Monroe Baldwin. “He really pushes you to grow and step out of your comfort zone,” Baldwin said. “It really sets you up for success.”
Pemberton, too, had good things to say about the program and what it could do for students.
“Some people these days don’t even know how to use a ruler,” Pemberton said. “I have nothing against computers, but we need a balance. These are the skills that art can give. The power of a hammer in your hand.
We couldn’t agree more.
We are happy to see the art thrive at the ACC and wish it many years of success in the future.
