Join us Wednesday, February 17th for our next installment of Art Jam. Gnomon founder Alex Alvarez will be live with our Chief Creative Officer, Josh Herman, to talk all things art, process, and inspiration! During the stream, they will each demo a personal project so viewers can experience a step-by-step approach to using 3D software and discover methods to keep the creativity flowing. Be sure to stick around for the whole stream as Josh and Alex answer viewer questions in real-time. Follow us on our social channels for more Art Jam guest artist announcements!
