See how we're bringing art to underserved Shreveport, LA residents
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.
In the past we hosted special demonstrations at the Deaf Action Center, Providence House and other social service organizations. Additionally, we provide free art classes to children in affordable housing facilities.
In our first year we started off our programming at Sanctuary Arts School with a Summer Glass Exhibition, curated by our director. This benefit helped thousands of individuals. This Texas Contemporary Glass Exhibition reached hundreds in the region including many students from summer educational programs.
We have hosted several MFA and BFA students who have utilized our hotshop and presented demonstrations. We also hosted our first "Artist in Residence." To learn more about these and our other initiatives please call 504-390-4377.
