FALL QUARTER 2018 RECAP

FALL QUARTER 2018 RECAP

We recently concluded our first Fall Quarter at Western Neon School of Art. Over the past two months, we’ve guided fourteen eager new students through the basics of bending in two Introduction to Light-Based Media classes. Everyone left the class with unique illuminated pieces, ranging from a seagull to abstract shapes to words to the Snapchat ghost. We enjoyed seeing everyone experiment and push outside of their comfort zones in order to create something they were excited about.

One of the milestones of the quarter, and the year, was receiving a significant grant from the Raynier Institute & Foundation. This grant will allow us to continue and expand the school in areas such as visiting artists, more workshops, better equipment, and more. Read more about it here.

We’re working hard and getting ready for Winter Quarter. We’ll be hosting two Introduction to Light-Based Media courses, as well as our first Light-Based Media: Intermediate course. Offerings for Spring Quarter and upcoming visiting artist events will be available soon – check back in on our Programs page and in our newsletter for more details. We’ve got lots of exciting things coming up!
