 Since 2007, fifteen MCC art students have won significant scholarships totaling nearly $150,000 to attend Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids. These scholarships were awarded based on the strength of their MCC art portfolios.

MCC art students also successfully transfer to many other colleges, universities, and art academies all across the country- including the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Western Michigan University Frostic School of Art, the University of Michigan School of Architecture, the School of Visual Arts in New York City, the College of Creative Studies in Detroit, and Grand Valley State University.

Past MCC art students are now successful architects, studio art teachers, museum professionals, gallery owners, ceramicists, graphic designers, animators, fashion designers, sculptors, digital illustrators, industrial designers, filmmakers, painters, interior designers, cartoonists, printmakers, furniture designers, and art historians.

“I was indeed impressed with the high quality of work and attention to detail. It is clear you have instructors that assign challenging and interesting visual problems.”

- Valerie Mann, MCC Visiting Artist,  Juror of the 2011 47th Annual Student Art and Design Exhibition
