VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Rhino 101

Nov 1 - 12, 2021

3PM - 5PM M,W,F

Concept

This intense and technical course dives deep into 3D modeling in Rhino. The goal is to learn and practice effective workflows and modeling habits, starting with basic drawing techniques and ending in complex surfaces. Students learn to design models suitable for output to various digital fabrication tools such as the 3D printer, laser cutter, and CNC router. Students are given design challenges and also encouraged to pursue their own projects.

Media

Rhino 3D. This virtual class meets Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 3PM – 5PM MST via Zoom Video Conferencing software (download free from Zoom.us). An Anderson Ranch staff member coordinates the class via the online platform.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOP: Introduction to Projection Mapping

Ryan Rasmussen

Tuition $595
Code S48W02-21

In this course we explore how projected image can be mapped to a variety of surfaces and materials to embellish, enhance, enliven, and/or activate them. Each student explores how projection mapping may be used as a way of creating active and time-based surfaces in their works. Demonstrations cover the three main aspects of this process: digital video and image manipulation, creating a 3D volume out of materials such as foamcore, cardboard, and fabric, and mapping digital media to constructed forms via computer and projector. All students should have access to a cheap projector for the duration of the workshop.

Mixed Media Collage

Leslie Shows

Tuition $1,950
Code JANSTU2022D

Join this exciting January intensive workshop to merge photography, painting, collage and digital fabrication technologies. We explore contemporary examples of layered mixed media work and delve into formal as well as technical approaches for combining diverse imagery to create a unique visual language. The class combines structured projects with individually-directed works, one-on-one critiques with the instructor, and group feedback. In addition to working in analog collage and painting processes, students use vector drawings and digital images to create shapes, stencils and image transfers with CNC, laser cutting and digital printing on various substrates. The workshop takes place in the wood loft and makes use of the photography/new media labs as well as the FabLab so that students can explore many possibilities for making dynamic and multilayered imagery. The instructor will be present from 9AM - 12PM each day and students will work independently in the afternoons. Students will have additional access to the Digital Fabrication and Photography & New Media studios during monitor hours on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7-9PM.

Object Design & Architecture

Del Harrow, Ronald Rael

Tuition $2,400
Code S1010-21

The innovation of 3-D printing has opened the doors for artists and designers to find new ways to access and develop built environments, architecture and multiple objects that create bold impact. This socially driven workshop considers how technologies, design, interaction and formal concerns help to aid and give agency to the intervention with, and disruption of, the consequences of existing societal and physical barriers. Creative thinking is encouraged as the basis for finding ways to use objects and constructs to enable new forms of consciousness. This class is in the second year of a three year program. Please contact Liz Ferrill for more information. lferrill@andersonranch.org.
