Cosmic Art Night at Northwest Vista College: Friday November 3, 2017

Cosmic Art Night

Fine Art Department faculty and staff will mix UV light reactive pigments into clay, fibers, and ink, and install black lights throughout the studios. The community is invited to enjoy the opportunity to try their hand at throwing a vessel on the potter’s wheel, or creating a sculpture using glowing, luminescent materials in colors of yellow, pink, green, and blue.

Our last Cosmic Art Night attracted over 100 people this past spring and the potter’s wheels were never left empty. In addition to luminescent clay, guests can bring clothing or paper to create silk screen prints with UV reactive inks!

This event is open to all students, faculty, staff and the San Antonio community. All ages welcome!
