Sanctuary Arts School is committed to bringing the glass arts to Shreveport, LA. Our community arts outreach program provides classes for the elderly, veterans, individuals with disabilities and children and families dealing with financial challenges. We also provide free public demonstrations for those in the community.
We recently hosted special demonstrations at the Deaf Action Center, Providence House and other social service organizations. Additionally, K-12 students benefit from our community outreach art classes.
In 2019, we co-hosted the Shreveport Regional Arts Council: A Summer of Glass Exhibition, curated by our co-director. This benefit helped thousands of individuals. To expand our reach, our director, Eric Hess, has also led curatorial talks at the Texas Contemporary Glass Exhibition for local students numbering in the thousands.
We've expanded our community arts outreach program substantially since our establishment in December 2018. Recently, we've even hosted BFA students from across the Gulf South at our studio. To learn more about our initiative, please call 419-461-0404.
Sanctuary Glass Studio is the only glass blowing studio in the Shreveport, LA area. However, we're attracting the attention of individuals outside of our community. Our full-access studio is open to:
- Folks in low-income communities
- Children living in public housing
- Seniors in nursing homes
- Individuals with disabilities
- Veterans dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder
