Students can start drawing, designing and rendering their ideas with SketchUp, 3D modeling software that's easy to learn and used by architects, designers, builders, makers and engineers. This course teaches students about the use of this free downloadable toolkit as a design and rendering tool. The instructor presents the fundamentals of the interface, and how to model original spaces and objects from scratch or import prebuilt objects from the Google warehouse. The accelerated format allows for faster learning as students quickly move on to advanced topics like texturing objects and creating simple animation. This course is recommended for novice designers or design students interested in learning how to incorporate 3D into their work.

This course takes place at the Westerly Education Center.
