Drawing figure and form is the foundation of any artist's creative toolkit. At Vertex, you can follow along a life drawing class taken by a professional artist. We'll provide the model, lights and setting. All you need to do is pull up a chair, bring your sketchbook or tablet and start creating.
Vertex will be host to a captivating programme of talks presented by leading experts and veteran creatives in the industry. From high-end projects to the latest software developments across a variety of mediums, you’ll hear from the makers of tomorrow’s tools and delve into the future of effects in the main auditorium. We’ll be finishing the day of keynotes with an all-star panel, where you’ll get the chance to join in on the conversation with our guest speakers. Seats are limited so make sure you get a ticket!
Try VR yourself to sculpt, model, and paint in an immersive environment. Use intuitive hand gestures and head movements for natural tactile interactions with your sculpts and admire 3D prints that were sculpted in Medium and sent directly to the 3D printer.
We'll be providing a wall for you to get creative on! In between the workshop sessions you can sketch and scribble to your heart's content on our dedicated doodle walls. You can collaborate with friends, new people you meet or just do your own doodles.
