Adventures in 3D Printing
Aug 2 - 6, 2021
9AM - 3PM
Nurture a love of creative exploration in this fast-paced workshop! Delving into 3-D printing technologies as a tool and art-making process, students playfully examine the physical/digital divide. 3-D scans of hand-built clay objects become a common form as various computer-modeling programs and techniques are introduced. Furniture design, architecture and character modeling are among the topics presented through Tinkercad and Sculptris. The open nature of the medium combined with a focus on real-world application gives each student lots of opportunities to explore their own ideas. At the end of the course, we celebrate with a group show.
Leah Aegerter is a sculptor working with a combination of digital fabrication techniques and traditional processes in wood and paper to investigate her relationship to geology and deep time. Leah received a BFA in sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2017 and was named an Aspen Art Museum Artist Fellow in 2022.
