Computer animation the focus of Second Sunday Art Series

staff report • Jan 5, 2013 at 6:39 AM

If you’ve ever dreamed of creating the kind of computer-generated animations seen in television shows, films and video games, mark your calendar for Jan. 13.

Byron Kindig, who teaches animation classes using a computer program called Blender, will be the featured artist for the next installment of the Kingsport Art Guild’s Second Sunday Art Series. “Computer Art, Animation and Game Creation” will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. in Room 239 of the Kingsport Renaissance Center.

The class is free, but pre-register is requested by calling 292-9900 or emailing khcarmack@charter.net and including “Art Series” in the subject line.

Blender is a free, open source 3D animation and gaming production suite that can be downloaded at www.blender.org.

Participants who have a laptop should download the current version of Blender and bring it with them to the class, although a laptop isn’t required.
