The Grand Blanc Arts Council is featuring the varied watercolors of Kent Copeman at Genesys Health Park through April, 2015. The exhibit, with subjects ranging from antique automobiles to portraits, can be viewed on the second floor, between the elevators.
Kent has studied the medium of watercolor under Betty L. Schlemn, AWS, Roland Roycroft and Joe Green. His work has been displayed at Fandangles and the Greater Flint Arts Council. He also illustrated the book “Watch Grandma, She Keeps Notes” with pen and ink sketches.
Kent says that he paints “for his own enjoyment and finds watercolor an exciting medium to try out various methods”.
Using his teaching degree with an Art major, Kent helped develop the Adult Basic Skills Program funded by the Mott Foundation to target adult literacy. He did some of the writing and illustrating of these materials and took all of the photographs. Kent says, “It was an exciting time and a wonderful five years. I came to Flint for the summer and spent 27 years in Flint.”
Kent Copeman currently spends much of his time with the Hadley Township Historical Society and the Hadley Mill Museum.
