Family History Fun Class

Zoom to learn about your family through the many programs offered at the Kearney Public Library and Elaine and Lynnda’s knowledge. We will start at the beginning and work backwards through your tree.

Plein Air Watercolor Art

Watercolors lend themselves to plein air painting. Equipment is minimal, and you can paint almost anywhere in just a few minutes. Bring basic watercolor materials with you to the first class: paper, paints, brushes,  something to hold water, and a pencil.

This class is full. 

Senior College Covid-19 Guidelines and Procedures will be followed for this in-person class.

Maps and Mapping: How We Know Where Stuff Is

Finding your way across the earth’s surface is not an easy thing to do without a map. In this class we’ll investigate maps in their various forms - historic, humorous, imaginary, as pieces of art and as works of fancy. We’ll look at maps that changed history and how they have changed through time. This is a revised and updated class from Spring 2016  ---Same Earth - different maps!

Election 2020: Three Really Great Professors Talk About Election History & Politics!

It’s election time and here is a unique opportunity to join three UNK Professors  for a wide-ranging discussion of the history, politics, and economics of past and present elections, culminating in a post-election round table on November 5.
