What: Virtual Reality 3D Painting Experience
Where: The Reading Rooms
When: Saturday 8th September, 10:00 – 16:30
Sponsored by: Those wonderful people from The Billericay Round Table
This is art with a very modern touch. First appearing in last year’s Art Trail, the Virtual Reality 3D Painting Experience proved very popular with everyone from the young to the not-so-young!! We had to bring it back – and again the event will be completely FREE thanks to the kind sponsorship of the Billericay Round Table.
Donning the VR headset you enter into a complete 3D world. You can paint in front of you, behind you, above you. You can choose different brushes, and colours; you can walk backwards and view your art from a distance – or walk forwards through your painting. It’s truly an incredible feeling !
We’ll be on hand to demo the capabilities of the Google Tilt Brush software – and friends and relatives will be able to see what’s happening on the TV screen.
Of course, seeing what’s happening on the screen isn’t quite the same as being in the reality – so they’ll almost certainly want a go too !
