Award Winning Illustrator Floyd Cooper Visits Burke

Kaitlyn White, Staff Reporter

Award-winning book illustrator Floyd Cooper visited Burke HS on February 7. Beginning with a live demonstration of his unique way of creating a painting, Cooper took the Burke student body on a journey through his life and his growth as an artist. Focusing on how he achieved success through perseverance, commitment and hard work, Cooper described his career path that led him to become the recipient of the Coretta Scott King Award for his illustrations in The Blacker the Berry and a Coretta Scott King Honor for Brown Honey in Broomwheat Tea and I Have Heard of a Land.

Big thanks to Mr. Corey MacDonald for bringing Mr. Cooper to Burke to inspire us all!
