Sharjah, May 28, 2021
This weekend, young artists in Abu Dhabi can grab a unique opportunity to watch their drawings come to life at the Augmented Reality Colouring workshop brought to Yas Mall by the 12th Sharjah Children’s Reading Festival (SCRF).
In these 50-minute sessions, kids will discover the basics of 2D imagery in a simple, hands-on workshop designed to stimulate the thinkers and creators in them. Participants will get to choose from a variety of colouring page options – wildlife, ocean life, cityscapes, and more. Once ready with their artworks, the workshop instructor will teach them how to use an augmented reality (AR) application on iPads they will be provided at the workshop.
And voila! One simple scan, and in seconds, all the colourful characters in their drawings will come to life, which the kids will be able to manipulate further by picking different functions on the AR application.
Four sessions of the workshop will be presented every day between 4pm to 9pm, until Saturday, May 29.
