Arts & Tech Summer School: Explore Digital Art

Arts & Tech Summer School: Explore Digital Art UC

A beginners-friendly day of learning, making and creativity for young aspiring artists aged 13-16, with Near Now and Bright Box.

With hands-on demonstrations and mentoring from our team of artists and creatives, you will learn the skills you need to make exciting, interactive art using technology.

Try out a range of new tools and techniques for making digital art. Including:

• Creative coding – make fascinating visuals and music using code.
• 3D scanning – turn real objects into digital artefacts to use in artworks and augmented reality.
• Virtual Reality – create three-dimensional art in VR.
• Glitch Art – turn photos into unexpected, experimental artworks.
• Projection mapping – build a cardboard sculpture and bring it to life with projected images.
• Playful prototyping – use LEDs, conductive materials, sound and code to create moving, interactive art.

You'll also have the chance to show off what you make in our Gallery – see for more details.

Please email if you have any questions about the event.
