Marygrove College’s Art Department understands how small steps can sometimes lead to larger ones. Together with the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM), they are helping people who have experienced great loss make that first stride to positive change and recovery-- by learning something new.

Twelve students have successfully completed their first course of digital media and video production, through a grant that helps the underserved in the city of Detroit. With the encouragement of Art Department Chair Jim Lutomski and Dean of Fine Arts Rose DeSloover, a syllabus was created by Tim Gralewski, Assistant Professor of Art.  Gralewski prepared a 14-week hands-on computer and video skills program, with projects that allow for self-expression and reflection.

Dance Department Chair sets a Foundation for Growth

DanceNine years ago, Jordeen Ivanov-Ericson's first graduating class as Department Chair at Marygrove School of Dance graduated one single student. Ivanov-Ericson definitely had her work cut out for her, as she sought to grow the program into what now amounts to two thriving dance companies: that's 43 majors to be exact, including ten very talented graduating seniors. When it comes to success, Ivanov-Ericson never misses her mark.
