The Brussels Blender User Group (BBUG) organize four master classes about 3D and Digital art in Brussels with four internationally renowned artists: David Revoy, Sarah Laufer, François Gastaldo and François Grassard.
To make the master classes possible, the BBUG is currently holding a crowdfunding campaign ending on the 15th of April, to defray the travel expenses of the four speakers: if the campaign goes over budget, the surplus will be divided between the Krita Foundation and the Blender Foundation.
They will teach in-depth about creating art using free graphics software: Krita and Blender.
