Program Description

LUX Center for the Arts is proud to present the LUX Art Academy! This program is offered in partnership with VR Nebraska and there is no cost to register. Students must be age 14-21 and qualify for VR Nebraska, or have an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) or 504 accommodation plans from their school.

LUX Art Academy will expand students’ knowledge of art techniques and jobs in the creative field, while simultaneously improving their soft skills for employment readiness. This 6-week program will focus on meeting artists, touring the art center, learning about how it operates behind the scenes, and doing hands-on art training.

There is also 8 weeks of paid work-based learning available for 6 students who complete the LUX Art Academy. These students will be hands-on in the classroom working alongside our teachers each day during our summer camp programs.
