Sue Bergeson enjoys artistic welding at Mid.

Sue Bergeson - Lifelong Learner

Moving to this beautiful area, I basically knew no one. I started looking for places to connect with interesting people. The Mid Michigan College Lifelong Learning artistic welding class sounded interesting. It certainly was nothing I had ever thought of doing, but it has been a great opportunity to try something new, something that challenges me in completely different ways.

The instructors have been so kind and patient. They have worked with each one of us, encouraging and teaching us based on what we want to do – it's not cookie cutter. I really appreciate that.

I’ve shown my pieces at several art shows – mostly around Traverse City – and had a lot of fun interacting with folks. It’s a completely new experience.

We all need to try new things, stretch, and grow at every age.
