The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Texas Tech University will host “because
art matters,” a summer art institute.
“We invite adults from Lubbock and surrounding communities to explore for the first
time or to expand their knowledge of art in a unique learning environment and with
personalized instruction from local art professionals,” said Emma Carrasco, coordinator
of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. “OLLI’s main philosophy is to celebrate learning
in a relaxed, intellectually stimulating and accepting environment.”
An oil painting class and a clay class will run June 28-July 9. The clay instructor
is Wendell Warman-Adams assisted by Roger Holmes, and the oil painting instructor
is Kathy Hinson. Pre-registration is required for the oil painting and clay on or
before Friday (June 11).
A glass class by instructor Pauline Mills is scheduled for July 12-23 and pre-registration
for this class ends on July 1.
Each two-week class costs $165 per person and includes all supplies. Enrollment is
open to adults on a first-come, first-served basis as there are limited spots available.
Register by calling (806) 742-7202 ext. 270, or visit http://www.olli.ttu.edu
to register securely using a credit card.
This new summer art institute is funded by a grant from The Helen Jones Foundation.
OLLI is a self-funded, membership organization endowed by the Bernard Osher Foundation
and located at Texas Tech University-University College. Numerous classes of various
subjects are offered each fall and spring semester.
