Our inaugural Arts & Culture event on September 26, 2015, set the bar high with a reading by Juan Felipe Herrera, Poet Laureate of the United States, at Nevada State College. Since then in its role as a community cultural center for southern Nevada, the Office of Arts & Culture has offered a rich variety of free public programs at the college such as guided tours of the Nevada State College Permanent Art Collection, poetry readings and workshops, musical performances, film viewings, lectures, seminars, workshops, and arts-based faculty development such as an exploration of the arts as a healing modality.

Contour Art Workshop with Claire Wentzel

Drop in for an all-ages, all-skill level drawing workshop with mixed media artist Claire Wentzel. Explore biased preconceptions and abandon judgment of your own self-image and creative expression as you revel in the satisfying joy of instant-art through blind contour self-portrait and gesture sketching exercises. We’ll be in the Scorpion Café in the Rogers Student Center as part of Untold Stories: An Exhibition Exploring the Artist as Storyteller. This program is made possible in part by a grant from Nevada Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities. This event is free and open to the public.
