About the event

Welcome to our grow in the dark art class!

Perfect for beginners and experienced artists alike, this workshop by The Creative Society Manchester offers a one-of-a-kind experience where you can paint with the lights switched off and watch your creations come to life with vibrant glow-in-the-dark paints. Guided by our friendly practicing artists, you'll embark on a journey of self-expression as you create your own masterpiece under the atmospheric glow of UV lights. Set in the historic Portico Library, a 216-year-old landmark in Manchester, this exquisite venue adds a touch of enchantment to your artistic experience. In this fascinating workshop, you'll focus on creating UV star maps of the night sky, taking inspiration from the renowned Richard Proctor. With expertise and guidance, you'll learn how to capture the celestial beauty and translate it onto your canvas. Throughout the class, you'll be provided with all the necessary materials, including UV paints, brushes, and a palette that shimmers in the dark. Our dedicated artists will be there every step of the way, offering guidance and support to help you unleash your inner creativity.
