3D Art
Wednesday 4-5pm
Grades 4-8
Class runs from 4/7-6/2, no class the week of April Vacation 4/19-4/23

In this program, students will explore three essential and complementary ways to design in three dimensions. We’ll start with Tinkercad, where we will apply the concept of Constructive Solid Geometry towards designing a solid, often linear and symmetrical object - such as furniture, wrench or chess piece. Next, we’ll build in virtual clay, using SculptGL, a web tool, and gain exposure to conceiving of 3D rounded surfaces as a collection of flat triangles or other polygons (mesh geometry). And, last, we will explore larger 3-dimensional spaces, with both internal and external design elements, by architecting houses using Sweet Home 3D. This is a super fun class that brings together the best in STEM and art!
• Software Required; TinkerCAD account, SweetHome3D
• Other Tech Requirements Windows, Mac, or Chromebook computer

Digital Animation
Wednesday 5-6pm
Grades 2-8
Class runs from 4/7-6/2, no class the week of April Vacation 4/19-4/23

This introductory class explores digital animation. Students create their own stories in the form of a storyboard complete with characters and scenes. They then learn to use digital animation methods to turn that vision into a movie and gain insights into the benefits and challenges of each technique. This class combines imaginative story-telling, hands-on crafts, and digital creativity tools. Students finished movie projects are available to take home to share with family and friends. We use Stykz Animation program for class, but students are welcome to try out the online WickEditor as a different platform.
• Software Required: Stykz Animation, The Stykz Software will run on Windows PC or Macintosh Computers. Windows is ideal. Windows operating systems requirements are: Windows Vista or later. Mac operating systems must be anywhere from Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) up to but not including OS 10.15 (Catalina).
