Virtual Worlds Art 8

Course Overview

Students completing this course have the opportunity to interact within a 3D virtual space and learn how to build digital environments and manipulate objects within these environments. This course takes place in a safe closed, moderated environment where students are encouraged to explore and create. The Digital Arts is a massive industry. This course introduces students to some of the tools used in that field.

  • A computer running Windows (5 years old or newer recommended), USB headset with microphone, and a good Internet connection are needed to complete this course.
  • This course is 10 weeks long and takes place in the first school semester. A substantial time commitment is expected during the final weeks of this program along with weekly online instructional meetings.

I look forward to seeing you creating soon!

90 minute weekly instructional meetings with an additional 90 minutes of self directed work on projects over the final 4 weeks.
