Fall classes in Brownville NE

Brownville Cultural Center Partners with Southeast Community College to host Fall Leisure Learning Classes

Brownville, NE, 

River View Glass owner, Jim Aden shares, “When conducting demonstrations for the visitors in Brownville, so many times I have been asked how one goes about taking classes or learns more about the artform. There is a definite need here in Brownville to host such personal interest courses and I am pleased that the Brownville Cultural Center and the Learning Center in Nebraska City have established this relationship with Brownville as a remote location.” 

 Brownville Cultural Center Chair, Kathy McKillip, adds “This is our first session and we will be offering ten classes, learning opportunities here in Brownville, we are thrilled! These courses are a great way to share with others new skills, emerging arts, unearthing hidden talents, and re-connecting with time forgotten through the arts and culinary exploration. Lessons about history and nature never grow old and re-discovering a new appreciation or understanding about a topic matter is what the Brownville Cultural Center is all about.  It is a perfect blend of utilizing the arts, history, culture and more, which essentially is what Brownville represents and has stood for since 1854, the first Cultural Outpost of the West, if you will.”

Brownville Village Theatre artistic director Mitch Bean stated, “We are especially proud of the new opportunities that the theatre has presented and will continue to host throughout the year. We are offering youth and adult workshops year-round. In addition, we will be presenting Willa Cather’s, “A Resurrection” during Old Time Autumn and we are looking forward to presenting a Holiday show as well. The theatre is such an integral part of the art scene in Brownville and plays an important role in the Village history as well. We are so very pleased to be partnering with the Brownville Cultural Center on several projects including the Fall 2018 Leisure Learning courses.”

Courses have recently been released via the Learning Center at Nebraska City catalog and is also available for viewing on line at www.souheast.edu/NebraskaCityLC
