In this course taught by artists Valerie Shusterov and Kate Hush, students will first learn the basic skills needed to work with glass tubing, leading to an emphasized focus on abstract sculpture, color, and silhouette. Gone are the letters and figures of traditional neon signage, instead the spotlight will be put on the creation of viscous forms and how they react to and influence their surroundings through hue, lumen, shape, and line.
This is an 8 week course that meets on Monday from 6pm-9pm.
All skill levels are welcome.
Students will be provided with a neon bending toolkit for use during class time, and one neon transformer that will light up to 2 small units. Additional transformers can be purchased on site if needed.
