Adventures in 3D Printing

Jun 28 - Jul 2, 2021

9AM - 3PM

Concept

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.

Workshop Details

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.

Beginning February 2023, Anderson Ranch will no longer require proof of Covid-19 vaccination for studio and artistic program participants. For your own safety as well as the safety of our community, we highly encourage all program participants to be up to date with their vaccinations for COVID-19 as well as the flu vaccine. We also encourage you to carry health and travelers insurance.

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.

COVID-19 Safety Plan

Anderson Ranch is closely following local and national health and safety guidance. At this time, Anderson Ranch visitors and public program and event participants are not required to show proof of vaccination. Studio and artistic program participants ages 13 and up will be required to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination.
Studio and artistic 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. Click here for additional health and safety information.
