Be introduced to Blender3D which is a powerful open source software for 3D modeling and animation. This workshop will provide an overview of how to create and import models, animate them within a scene, apply textures and materials, and render for distribution. By the end of the workshop, participants will have created a short animation to share online as a video or GIF. Personal laptops + a mouse are recommended, however, participants will not be turned away due to lack of hardware. Snacks, TTC tokens and USB flash drives filled with 3D assets will be provided. This workshop will be beneficial to any Latinx youth who is interested in exploring experimental and expanded practices in animation, new media and digital painting.
::: ABOUT THE ARTIST & FACILITATOR :::
Born in Bogotá, Colombia.
Alisson is a transmedia artist + art worker living and operating in Toronto, Canada. Their work explores the internal drives and external influences that shape identity as a Colombian first-generation immigrant in North America. They are interested in subversive strategies of laughter and femininity as a linguistic and visual medium: play upon codes already in place and the degree to which we are shaped by consumer capitalist culture and mass media.
Through their work, they attempt to engage and interact with the public by creating, facilitating or collaborating in shared experiences. They are a part of the digital art collective Tough Guy Mountain and runs The Brandscape. They hold a BFA with an honorable mention from the Ontario College of Art and Design University.

Charles Street Video is a not-for-profit facility that focuses on media and film production and post-production.
We acknowledge the ancestral and traditional unceded territory on which we stand: of the Haudenosaunee, Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca and most recently Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy of the Ojibwe and Allied Nations to Peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
