This two months course focuses on an introduction to 2D/3D character creation and movement and is geared towards AR lenses for Android and iOS, similar to ones used by Snapchat and Facebook.

This course focuses towards providing students with a taste of the Animation and Gaming skills currently being used in the industry with the hope to provide guidance if the students are interested in pursuing a career within such programs. Students were guided by specialists for 2 hours daily where they participated in different creative art tutorials, augmented reality intros and programming sessions. At the end the students had perfected their skills or begun to learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe After Effects, Lens Studio and Maya 3D. 

This course is meant for everyone, students that have never been introduced to such technology and also to those who want to open their mind to things beyond what they already know.
