Explore one of the most exciting emerging technologies of our time, and get a glimpse into the future of artistic endeavours! In this fascinating workshop, students use two different kinds of modeling programs and 3-D scanners and printers to delve into the possibilities of this technology as a tool for other work and as an art making process all its own. We start with simple hand building to bridge the gap from the physical to the digital world. Then we scan objects into the computers and print them out. We dive into the programs making a variety of projects, from furniture to animals to architecture to abstract sculpture! Because of the open nature of the medium, each student has ample opportunity to explore your own ideas and directions. At the end of the course, we celebrate with a group show of our work!
