The Art Classroom In 3D

Most family films (especially animations) are released in 3D now. 3D seems to have re-appeared after a slow demise in the eighties and early nineties. Sure, the technology is slightly more advanced and the picture is slightly sharper, but the idea is still the same. Take two photographs, one from the right eye, one from the left, make them red and blue, merge them over each other at a converging point and there you go; a 3D image.

Channel 4 is running a week of 3D programming, this means that most people in the UK should have a pair of 3D glasses in their home at the minute. I thought that this would be the perfect time to try some 3D images of art pieces in The Art Classroom.

The images might not be as successful as professional ones you usually encounter, though hopefully you’ll get something rewarding from each image. Photographs are taken with an iPhone, then opened in Photoshop to make black and white and merge together.

Let me know if any of these images were successful or unsuccessful for you. I would quite like to try a unit with unique 3D pupil artwork. If you have Photoshop and a camera and you’re wanting to try this yourself, watch the video below:
