About this Event

This is a hands-on free art workshop where Ogden residents will build community relationships and learn about their neighbours by participating in character design and drawing activity for an augmented reality artwork. Each senior will partner up with the youth and together they will express their community histories through their character drawing imagination. Seniors will become a live model for artwork and share personal history in the Ogden community with the youth. All will learn character design for virtual reality and gaming and have your artwork take part in an augmented reality public art coming to the Ogden community in 2019.

Participants will receive a personal 3D print of their creation at the final public art reveal and celebration.

This community public art project is part of the City of Calgary This is my neighborhood program in conjunction with the Artists Working in Community Program.
