Redefining the Classroom

Art adjunct passes his craft of drawing on to next generation

Posted: February 7th, 2014

WATCHFUL EYE – Lake Superior State University student Jacob Mandelko completes a charcoal sketch under the watchful eye of his professor, William Morrison, during a drawing fundamentals class on Feb. 3 in Sault Ste. Marie, Mich. Between now and the last week of April, Morrison will take his students through mixed media such as graphite, charcoal, colored clays, and chalks. The LSSU adjunct instructor was selected as the Michigan Education Association’s Art Instructor of the Year in 2003. He also owns Spruce Forge, which has been producing custom, hand-forged items since 1978. Mandelko is a senior from Rochester, Minn., majoring in fire science. Run a Web search on LSSU fine arts for more information about those programs at Lake State. (LSSU/Sault High Photo Intern Tasha Cook)
