2015 Summer Program

Learn the basics of Blender, a professional, open source 3D modeling and animation toolkit. Blender is used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications, and video games. This program contains numerous modeling features as well as an integrated game and physics engine.

Create animated titles, model and texture simple and complex objects, and learn how to animate characters using rigging and key frames. Understand the different functions and tools the software offers. Use your imagination and creativity to add your unique sense to your models. You can create short animations. You can save a gallery of pictures. Or save "sprite" art for your programming projects! Take your work home on a USB drive or CD.

You will be introduced to a new program and language. As with all languages, you will discover just how much practice you need to become fluent. But you will begin to learn a masterful program.
