Virtual Studio: Virtual Reality in Art

A computer-designed environment that allows users to interact within the digital environment as they would in a real-world situation. Virtual Studio is a partially immersive, interactive virtual learning environment based on the metaphor of the artist's studio. Its primary use will be to teach elementary students about the techniques, styles, and histories of artists and art. Each part of Virtual Studio is named after a major artist who used or pioneered a particular style or technique. There are three core sections of Virtual Studio: architectural design, sculptural design, and digital painting and color theory.
