Abbie Klein Powers

“At WSC, I was able to develop as a student, as well as an artist, in a supportive learning environment through the encouragement of the professors and fellow students. I was involved in setting up student art shows in the college gallery, as well as being active in the Art Club activities on campus. I was given many opportunities to show my work around campus. As a resident assistant, I met many great students and college staff members with whom I still keep in contact. Wayne State College was just the right school for me to learn the necessary skills to develop professionally as an artist, providing me an environment of discovery and support, as well as a place to build many lasting friendships.”

While at Wayne State College, Abbie received a full graduate teaching-assistantship to pursue her Master of Fine Arts degree in sculpture from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.




Leroy vonGlan

“As a student at WSC, I was given an exposure to a broad range of methods and materials used by all the art disciplines, as well as those used in the medium of clay. Being allowed to explore these diversities was a great way to shape personal visions and professional growth. Wayne State and the art and design instructors presented me with the opportunity for a multi-faceted evolution that encouraged my work to develop into what it is today.”
