Schedule: 1:00–4:00 p.m. online
In this hybrid art and technology lab, students explore the fast-growing fields of digital art and fabrication as they bring their ideas to life from sketchbook to final product. Using software and resources available to the public, students create individualized works across media as they consider the role of technology in contemporary art and design practices. Activities introduce techniques such as vector graphic design and 3D modeling for the purposes of art and functional design.
Requirements: A desktop or laptop computer with access to Internet (tablets and mobile devices will not run programs well). Internet connection must be adequate to stream videos and work with files in online applications. Students will use TinkerCAD and Vectr software, both freely available. A digital camera (cellphone is fine) will be needed to submit images to the instructor. You will also need a ruler and string.
Course Fee: $295.00, enrollment for 1.0 credit available.
