Celebrating Cancer Survivors
Cancer survivors are invited to attend our free art classes called Expressions of Art & Hope. We have partnered with LUX Center for the Arts to offer you the opportunity to explore a creative process of self-expression and reflection to help you meet the challenges of diagnosis, treatment and beyond.
Due to equipment needed, classes are held at the LUX Center for the Arts, located at 2601 N 48th Street in Lincoln. Enter the LUX from the West parking lot entrance. Register online now.

Monday, July 10, 6-8 p.m.
Photo Transfer: (Katelyn Farneth) Learn multiple photo transfer techniques for wood, encaustic, and more. Bring photos or printouts and we will photocopy them in black and white to be used to collage your own unique art piece.

Monday, August 14, 6-8 p.m.
Nebraska Landscape Paintings: (McKenzie Phelps) Paint your own Nebraska inspired landscape painting. Learn how to depict the earth and sky in your own style. Feel free to bring your own images, work from one of ours, or invent your own.

Glazing and Carved Clay Pumpkins: (Jason Piccoli) Come carve your own clay jack-o-lantern. Each participant will be provided a thrown clay form to be altered and glazed. Students from the pottery wheel class in September can glaze their pots as well. (RSVP Required, we need to know how many pumpkins to prepare)

Fused Glass: (TBD) Cut and layer colorful glass to create sun catchers, ornaments, and pendants. Participants can create multiple projects that will be fired and returned at the following class. Former students can bring previous fused glass projects to alter or include in new works. Each student may bring ONE glass bottle to be slumped in the kiln in preparation for next month

Monday, December 11, 6-8 p.m.
Frosted Glass: (Katelyn Farneth) Using our sandblaster we will experiment with ways to use tape, stickers, stencils, and more to make designs and patterns permanently transfer to glass. Glass ornaments will be provided but feel free to bring your own items as well!
