Funded by a grant from the CSU Entertainment Industry Initiative, the CSU Stanislaus Art Department is hosting a series of guest workshops around the theme of storytelling in the digital arts. The Modeling Strong Characters in a 3D Digital Environment workshop will be led by Gerardo Orioli, and will consist of five-hours of hands-on instruction in which CSU students develop an idea in a 3D digital environment.
This is a FREE workshop, but space is limited. RSVP jgomula [at] csustan [dot] edu
