This introductory workshop is for people who want to be introduced to the free software Blender. The workshop will provide an overview of the basics of 3D computer graphics modeling and animation. In a practical approach, participants will manipulate the tools that allow them to create and modify shapes and objects; explore the application of materials and lighting and manipulate the virtual camera to develop various points of view in both still and moving images. The objective is to demystify this software and to present its potential to participants so that they can integrate it into their artistic practice. No prerequisite to attend this training.
