Calibraska Arts Initiative to go online

A group of students participate in a Calibraska Arts Initiative class in 2019.

Registration is now open for summer Calibraska Arts Initiative classes.

Calibraska Arts Initiative is a program that allows Los Angeles creative industry-based artists to mentor and teach Nebraskans of all ages.

Due to COVID-19, the event has been moved online. However, this has given Calibraska the opportunity to expand into more media, performing, literary and creative arts classes. This summer’s line-up includes improv, stand-up, hip hop, literature, acting, storyboarding, costuming, music, film, animation, puppet theatre and much more.

Erica Larsen-Dockray, Calibraska Arts Initiative director and founder, currently teaches and creates animation in Los Angeles. The University of Nebraska–Lincoln graduate was born and raised in Scottsbluff, so bringing these educational opportunities to students in her state — such as those she would have liked as a young student — is her passion and what drives her to orchestrate this multi-faceted, robust arts program for Nebraskans.

Dates, costs, age ranges and class descriptions as well as registration processes can be found online. For questions or inquiries, interested parties can email or call 308-631-5704.
