LUX Art Academy

Program Description

LUX Center for the Arts is proud to present the LUX Art Academy! This program is sponsored by VR Nebraska, so 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 to qualify. 

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 11 weeks of paid work-based learning available for 4 students who complete the LUX Art Academy. The work-based learning students will be hands-on in the classroom working alongside our teachers each day during our summer camp programs.
