We are thrilled to announce one of the most anticipated Low Vision Interest Group activities of the year: Virtual Paint Night! Our Virtual Paint Night in Fall 2021 was a huge hit and was a great opportunity for friends to destress together.
Join us on Tuesday, November 29, 2022 at 8:00 pm where UWOVS’ very own Sahil Merhali – designer of the Unicorneas class logo – will walk us through one of his creations, step-by-step. Students are encouraged to try painting in dim light or using some sort of low-vision simulator – for example, sunglasses, polarized glasses, red-green glasses, taping paper over central visual field on spectacles, painting in the dark, etc.
Deadline for registration and payment is Friday, November 18, 2022. The cost for participation is $18 per person, with proceeds being used to support future events and activities of the Low Vision Interest Group!
All required materials, including a canvas, paint, brushes, etc, will be provided. We will plan to make the material available for pick-up at both CLV and the School of Optometry.
All participants will also have the opportunity to win one of several prizes (one of three $25.00 Amazon gift cards). All that is required is for you to take a picture of yourself with your artwork and share it on the Facebook event page with the type of low-vision simulation you experimented with. With your permission we will share your masterpieces with our members!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
