Thuthukani Ndlovu will be hosting a one-day workshop that provides a hands-on introduction to Artivive App (the augmented reality tool for artists) and pinpoints the potential of AR as a new way for artists to express and differentiate themselves. Participants will be able to use the tool without any prior technical skills. They will learn how to augment photos, paintings, drawings, graffiti or tattoos as well as learning how videos and 3D objects can be overlaid on to a physical space and viewed through mobile devices. Artists will get the chance to create their own animation and they will be guided as they add an AR layer of animation to bring the artwork to life. Participants should have good access to the internet because the platform that will accommodate their work requires a strong bandwidth. Thuthukani will also share some of the work he has done as a digital artist, as well as curated work featuring AR artworks created by other artists with The Radioactive Blog (eg Giving Poetry Wings). This workshop is ideally for digital/ visual artists, and participants must RSVP to receive the workshop schedule and link.
