EXP Club (Experiential Art & Design)

A space to create & playtest digital experiences. Come make video games, immersive art, AR filters, websites, and literally anything else you can think of— every other Thursday @ 1-2pm. If it’s creative + involves tech, we’ll do it. (We’re 100% online for Fall 2020! Meet us on Discord: https://discord.gg/sQUjMN6) Every 2 weeks, we pick a new topic (apps, environment art, interactive fiction, 3D modeling…) and challenge you to make a mini project on it. Each one comes with tutorials, inspiration & download links— so you don’t need any experience to join. Find your dream role, have a support system for when you get stuck, team up w/ other students for passion projects, or just try something new.
