Luciano "Luc" Clayton Schincariol was a talented 18-year-old artist. Luc was a creative writer. Luc was a caring volunteer in his community and with his neighbors. Luc wanted to “do something significant” when he grew up. Luc suffered a fatal injury this summer and never got to pursue his arts further at Michigan State University where he was planning to study English and become a Music and Screenplay Writer. Luc is now a vibrant soul. His family and friends feel his guiding light to encourage and develop artistic growth in other young people. We are sad without his physical presence, yet joyous in helping continue his charitable and creative nature. We all will make Beauty from Broken.
On theater stages around the world there is a light. A light placed on the stage after the curtain closes and the performers and audience members have gone home. This light illuminates an otherwise dark auditorium. It helps guide and keep any person who might come onto stage safe from the edge.
We are Luc’s Light. A Light for teens of Southwest Michigan to come and navigate our world stage in safety amongst a caring cast.
Lucas Clayton was born August 5, 2002. * He died June 25, 2021.During his dash* (the 18 years he was with us on this Earth), he became an exceptionally talented bass guitarist, writer, artist, and student of composers and screenplays. He honed his creative skills mostly at home in his bedroom. Like most teens of his generation, he had to spend much of his last two years being in home isolation due to Covid-19.
In 2022 we want to contribute at least $50,000, and up to half of our overall profits to purchase instruments and/or lessons for area teens and area music programs or other direct youth music programs. The other half or more we will save for the construction of a youth arts facility where students ages 12 – 20 can attend after school for free lessons in music, dance, fine arts, photography, and voice.
We will provide a safe, supportive, faith-based environments for all teens, no matter their background. Luc’s Light knows that teenagers are hungry for growth and constructive exploration to develop their talents. Doing so safely amongst caring instructors and peers is good for them and the health of the whole community.
Thank you for supporting Luc’s Light Youth Music and Arts Foundation. Together we will help make Luc’s impact more significant than he could have imagined. For more information and to see our goals and future plans please go to LucsLight.org.
