Bull Brushing

Google’s Tilt Brush is an incredible way to step into your art and become part of a 3-D world of your own creation. We’ve listened to your requests for it and have finally been able to add it to all of our stations!  It’s an application for all ages and for amateur and professional artists alike (we even provided it at the NC Museum of Art last year)!

Through October, we’re offering a 30 minute session of Tilt Brush for $10.  This deal is subject to walk-in availability and cannot be booked online, so we do recommend calling ahead to request your time at 919-748-4578.  It cannot be shared among participants.

During your 30 minute session, we’d love to see you create a 3-D representation of our logo. We’ll feature top submissions on our Facebook page, and the month’s winner (judged by our staff) will be featured on our website (and if you’re a professional, we’re happy to promote your social media accounts as well).

Feel free to enter this contest during a regular session if you prefer.
