About the Snap Lens Academies

The Snap Lens Academy (SLA) launched in 2021 to inspire future creators of AR worlds. This academy highlights the intersection of art and technology and the limitless possibilities on how AR can be integrated into our everyday lives.

SLA Scholars build new Lenses almost every day! They take their design and technical skills to new heights. These Scholars practice creating memorable interactions with the real world via AR through 2D and 3D art they design.

SLA Scholars may graduate from the Academy, but their Snapchat Lenses and the worlds they built in AR stay with us forever as they go build Lenses for local and global brands.
