Come play with light, glass, and the noblest of gases in this electric introduction to neon! Taking inspiration from neon signage in the city and the industry at large, students will craft their own strange advertisements, create luminous messes, and get in some serious play. We will take a rigorous look at signage industry basics before jumping to unconventional solutions, and arriving at new and exciting outcomes. Come along with an open mind and get ready to safely play with fire!
