Description

How easy is it to design and build your own original action figures and game pieces? In this introduction to 3D modeling, you'll answer these questions as you explore the prototyping process and STEM to STEAM learning in the areas of anatomy, computer science and spatial dynamics. You begin by brainstorming your concept in a sketchbook, and quickly move to the computer where you learn to navigate the powerful 3D modeling software ZBrush. As you become proficient, you'll build and optimize custom toy parts and figures, resulting in dependable 3D models that have the possibility of commercial rapid printing -- a record of your ability as a budding toy designer.

Applies to: AT, Y3, YD

Description

Discover the most important product design tool worldwide, SolidWorks 2016, by experiencing the virtual reality of 3D modeling and the tangible reward of 3D printing. As a solid modeler, utilizing a parametric system to define and describe space, SolidWorks has the distinct advantage of a chronological system of actions that define an object, and the ability to revise and edit those steps at any time. You'll learn the interface at a friendly pace, building an object of your choice -- first as a 2D sketch, then as a virtual 3D object and, finally, a physical 3D-printed piece.

Applies to: AN-E, ID-E, PM-E

Description

Artist Keith Haring once said, "Drawing is still basically the same as it has been since prehistoric times. It brings together man and the world. It lives through magic." Young artists discover the nature of that magic, as they take command of the marks they make, and are provided with a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of drawing and sketching. Assignments utilize a rich array of drawing materials, while expanding on traditional subject matter: still lifes, landscapes, cityscapes and portraits, as well as both observational and abstract applications of making marks. The course is ideal for students with little or no experience who want to explore the magic of drawing. Group discussion and one-on-one instruction are provided to meet the specific needs of each student.

Description

This course serves as an introductory experience for students interested in exploring the exciting field of architecture -- where innovative design, aesthetics, practicality, cost and materials all intersect. Topics to be covered include directly relevant issues such as the design process, design development and presentation preparation, as well as secondary issues such as protecting and enhancing the fabric of the community, working with recycled materials and using cutting-edge "green" approaches. Video/DVD documentaries featuring key architects are presented in brief each week to enrich the students' learning experience, and to help provide a sense of context. In the process, we view both historical and contemporary examples of notable architecture to help us address issues of style, space and materials. During the last class, students present their completed projects.

Applies to: AT, Y3

Description

Get your summer moving! This camp is all about building and moving, as you design both functional and fantastical kinetic art. Rolling art cars, spinning whirligigs and flying machines are all up to the imagination as you consider the mechanics or properties of different motions. Looking to artists and inventors such as Leonardo DaVinci and Alexander Calder, you'll dive into creating and designing moving art. Throughout the week, you'll be busy drawing up plans and constructing in the studio, as well as having fun and testing your creations outdoors.
