Description

Learning 3D modeling is best done with a combination of the proper tool and an appropriate project. In this workshop, that combination is Sculptris and the creation of a chess piece. The session starts with an introduction to the free downloadable 3D modeling tool Sculptris, which enables young artists to begin creating three-dimensional forms on the computer with ease -- and without expensive licensing fees. Students collaborate, with each claiming a different piece (knight, rook, pawn, etc.) built around a common design motif. By the session's end, students leave with completed design files that can be printed at home or through a service like Shapeways.

Description

How do you turn your sketchbook character into a three-dimensional clay figure? It is easy and quick to create using polymer clay, as you build over a metal armature and then sculpt the broad forms and fine details. The course starts with lessons in sculptural anatomy, proportion and exaggeration -- all of which play into how your hero might be shaped -- and concludes with a demonstration of painting techniques over the finished sculpture (or maquette). By the course's end you will have learned a process of character design that continues to have value to illustrators and concept design professionals.

This course takes place at the Westerly Education Center.

The sky's the limit when you open up the art closet's treasure trove and add in a sprinkle of the unknown -- winding up with out-of-this-world results! Join us to become a mixed media maniac and explore the exciting world of imaginative art, where there are no limits placed on your creativity.
