First I’d like to say, blender is a great program. Not only has it given us great art, but some friends on the forums here and there.
Now we see things come and go. We see a LOT of new projects formed and usually most of them fail, but some do work. So today I want to try to create a community for blender - and we’ll see where it goes?
Intentionally this site was created for Blender teachers in general to learn from each other on how to teach blender. But I think we can make it more than that. I have opened it up for members to join, schedule time and places to meet up for blender related meetings such as :
- Study Groups
Now why would someone even look at this or join this site? Well lets take the average blender person. Most of them are individuals who sit at a computer and are very secluded to using blender. At most they will reach out to someone on the forum for help.
What if though - You could just go to a site and check to see if there was a group in your area. Maybe a class. Maybe you could teach a class then form a group.
I think it’s time we can step away from the computer, give the fingers a rest and meet face to face. It might not work for some of the smaller towns but I’m sure for some bigger towns it could work out.
If you decide to join the site, I have different levels of administration
- Admin : me…yeah I operate the site
