VP Learning Laboratories – Digital Portals: 3D Animation
November 17, 2021 - November 24, 2021
Have you ever wanted to learn how to create and animate 3D objects?
In this 2-part workshop, we will learn the basics of 3D animation with Blender, an open-source 3D animation program. As a source of inspiration, we will learn about the history, theory and examples of 3D animation and art.
In the first workshop, we will learn the basics of 3D animation. In the second workshop, we will learn more advanced options based on participants’ interests. Attendees can share their work from experimenting during the week for feedback as well.
