Adventures in 3-D Printing

Aug 1 - 5, 2022

9AM-3PM

Concept

Nurture a love of creative exploration through technology and handcrafted objects. This workshop delves into 3-D printing technologies as an artistic tool where students playfully examine the border between the digital and the physical worlds. Three-dimensional 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. The end of the course is celebrated with a group exhibition.
