Poem of the Month
To be born excludes the right to growth
Within is where the music plays
Colors vibrating a symphony of creation
May the meek roar like the fiercest lion
Assimilation dies with identity
Create your metaphysical manifestation metamorphosis
Dream vividly, love intensely, give until there is nothing left
Your eyes stay bright from divinity
Greater than thyself
Give all away and return to dust

The Lumonics School of Light Art
By Barry Raphael, School Administrator
The Lumonics School of Light Art, founded by Dorothy Tanner, opened in October, 2018. Lumonics is among the earliest and longest-running light art studios in the U.S. One of the first lighted geometric shapes created in the studio was the cube, which is what we teach students to make. Some of the cubes in our studio are over 50 years old, and still look new.
Students are guided in an intimate studio setting to create their own one-of-a-kind cube which they will take home after the course is completed. Some knowledge of shop tools is recommended although not required. Students do what is comfortable for them. Marc Billard, the instructor and co-director of the School, will do the construction for any step if requested.
We have a model to view, one of Dorothy’s lighted cubes, to give you creative ideas. You will learn how to electrify your art work using LED bulbs/LED strips dependent on your project, learn what shop tools are required, and how to use them. You will add your creativity to the art work to bring it to completion on the final session.
You do not have to be an artist to take this course, but will feel more artistic and confident of your artistic abilities when the class concludes. Just walking into the studio/gallery fires the imagination. If you are an artist but do not have experience working with Plexiglas, some of the shop tools, or LED lighting, this is a great opportunity.
1, 2 and 4-session classes are available for students, depending on their time schedules. One of the most popular days are Saturdays. Classes are limited to 4 students so each person receives a lot of personal attention.
The cost is $240 + material costs of $65 to create your light sculpture, a total of $305. You are welcome to tour the facility before enrolling.
The Lumonics School of Light Art is the recipient of Westword’s Best Of Denver Award, 2019.

Great way to explore your use of light and alteration in in your art. Great folks to work with. Wonderful environment to be creative. lots of light color and form for inspiration surrounds you. Marc is AWESOME! I had so very much fun. Thank you again for your flexibility around my class times! I recommend taking this class 100%

This was a wonderful and exciting class! Every one of us shared delight at each step of the way as Marc demonstrated one cool technique after another. All of the colors, textures, and creativity made for a wonderful (and too short!) experience, with the best part being the exquisite piece of art we each got to take home. I can’t wait for the next class!
