Holmes alumna Dickerson to teach Art at Attala Center
Thanks to Inez Dickerson, bright, colorful paintings of bulldogs and scenic landscapes, as well as abstract pieces, adorn the walls of the beautiful new Holmes Community College Attala Center. A 1965 alumna of the Holmes Goodman Campus cosmetology program and an artist who has been painting for over 20 years, Dickerson was more than thrilled to paint a number of canvases to decorate the Center, which opened its doors on Nov. 19. She was also excited to accept the offer to teach an art class for Holmes.
Located on West Jefferson Street in Kosciusko, the state-of-the-art facility serves the community through academic, workforce and community (non-credit) course offerings. Dickerson will teach a six-week art course, beginning Feb. 8. The course, which cost $100, will focus on acrylics and is open to painters at all levels, from beginners to the advanced. Dickerson especially encourages beginners to give the course a shot, as many have surprised themselves.
"Some students have found a hidden talent in my classes," Dickerson said. "In fact, many of my students have gone on to become great artists."
After earning her cosmetology degree at Holmes, Dickerson studied art and sharpened her artistic abilities at Millsaps College. She has always held Holmes close to her heart, and is excited to have an opportunity to give back to the school that means so much to her.
