Hello! My name is Monique Desormeau and I've been teaching art education at MCC since 2002. I currently teach ART.-100: Early Childhood Art Education (birth to age 5), ART.-101: Art Education (Grades K-5), and ART.-102: Secondary Art Education (Grades 6-12). I’ve been an art and museum educator for over 25 years. In addition to working at MCC, I'm the head of the Education Department at the Flint Institute of Arts.
I have been teaching in Mott's Fine Arts department since Winter of 2002. Prior to that, I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Art Hisotry (minor in Art Education) at the College of New Rochelle, New Rochelle, NY and a Master of Science degree in Art Education from the College of St. Rose, Albany, NY.
I chose to teach at Mott Community College because Community College students are more interesting than students at any other kind of educational institution. I thrive in the diversity of a Mott classroom (face-to-face or online), where students range in age from 17 to 75 and bring with them a tremendous amount of wisdom and life experience. Even the youngest have stories to tell, and these stories keep me engaged.
I believe the power of art can transform people’s lives. That’s why I’ve spent my career helping people explore art and creative self-expression. I’m looking forward to helping you learn how to do this for your future students!
