Interactive video sets, 3D animation and amazing displays of artwork are a few of the many things you can experience at the upcoming Digital Arts Student Showcase at Selkirk College in Nelson.
The first and second year Digital Arts & New Media students will be putting forward their best work of the year to be viewed, played with and enjoyed by the general public. With free Adobe Photoshop and After Effects tutorials, Flash games, door prizes and food, people of all ages will be able to enjoy this year’s show.
Second year student, Kelsey Rosner of Rossland, is excited about the upcoming Showcase. “It’s going to be good! It will have a little something for everyone. I’m really looking forward to it-this is a great opportunity for us to show our stuff.”
Kelsey, along with 14 other students, will be graduating from the Digital Arts & New Media program this April. After graduation she plans to take some time off to put together her portfolio and then follow her dream to write and illustrate children’s books. She has completed a book entitled “My Dog Pepper”, which will be on display at the Showcase.
