Success in 'something different'

Jean Steiner's work, including this sculpture, got the attention of her professors.

Jean Steiner, a 41-year-old nurse from Newark, hadn't taken an art class since the ninth grade, but she decided to give art a try at FLCC.

"I went back to school looking for something different," she said. Jean found she particularly enjoyed painting and bronze casting.
Her work got the notice of professors, who named her the first recipient of a new scholarship for sculpture and drawing students.
Professor Emeritus Wayne Williams of Newark established the scholarship in honor of his parents, Ashley and Pauline Williams, who were unwavering supporters of Williams' decision to pursue the arts as a career.
"Since my parents were deprived of finishing high school, they were especially sensitive about giving us the chance they didn't have," Williams said. "My parents gave us support by taking us to places like the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg. They helped us financially with school and art materials as well as attending exhibits and art related events."
The $400 scholarship will be given each May at the college's Spring Arts Festival.
Steiner said she may pursue a bachelor's degree in fine arts at SUNY Oswego.
