Ages 9 - 12
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.

Lodging & Meals
Anderson Ranch closely follows guidance released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Colorado and the Pitkin County Health Department. In order to operate safely during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Anderson Ranch has made significant modifications to our housing and meal offerings.
Summer 2022 workshop participants ages 13 and up will be required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination. Studio program participants are required to show proof that they have received the complete Covid-19 vaccine (i.e., two weeks have passed after receiving the second dose of either the Moderna or Pfizer MRNA vaccines or the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine). Additionally, if six months have passed since completing the Moderna or Pfizer series or two months have passed since receiving the J & J vaccine, then a booster is also required. Ideally the booster would have been administered at least two weeks prior to coming to Anderson Ranch.
We have established a Business Safety Plan with added layers of precaution that prioritizes the health and safety of our staff, students, faculty and guests while continuing to provide you with the Anderson Ranch experience that you know and enjoy.
Housing is limited and includes shared and private lodging options. Reservations will be managed on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you reserve housing, the better your chance of receiving your preferred option. Please note: Workshop costs do not include accommodations.
