Digital Methods for Traditional Makers
Learn how to use basic digital fabrication tools and techniques in combination with hands-on sculptural practices to bring a new set of possibilities to your work. This fundamental sculpture course introduces basic digital fabrication software and use of the laser cutter and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) router for cutting, carving and engraving. Students use new technology along with traditional additive and subtractive techniques to make sculptures in a variety of materials, including paper, cardboard, wood, foam and acrylic. Slideshows and group discussions explore how contemporary artists are using these digital tools and techniques in combination with traditional methods.
