The Rise of Video Game Art
Video games have one more significant connection with digital art, and that is the experimentation with human-computer interface, interactivity and aesthetics of computer image that provided a base for artistic performances.
The workshop is built around the model of “teach one to reach one”, where a percentage of the workshop contributions are used to fund the same sessions we hold in remote countries where girls lack these opportunities to play and learn.
