Students will practice drawing with different medias such as pencil, charcoal and soft pastel leading into painting with Neocolor II. Neocolor II is a crayon that when used with water and a brush will become a painting. The goal of this class is to inspire students to discover how drawing can connect you to the world around you. Drawing subjects will vary depending on student interest and will include drawing from observation, drawing as process and creating abstractions with geometry. Students will need to bring; general drawing pad and a hot pressed watercolor pad, a box for pencils and erasers

3D Printing Workshop - Jewelry Design

Building 24 studio G
[1 session for $65, this class is only offered 1 time as an intensive workshop]

This class truly demonstrates the power of 3D printing. Students will have approximately 1 hour to sketch their designs and receive feedback on the 3D printablity of the design. Then, students will have the opportunity to learn about 3D modeling and how quickly designs can be transformed into digital models. As a class, one design will be selected to be printed during class and subsequently assembled into wearable jewelry. After the class, FISH3D will finalize all sketches and/or 3D models and have finished pieces shipped to the student's doorstep!

3D Printing Workshop - Fidget Spinner Design/Assembly/Experimentation
Faculty: Jason Fishner (Biography)

Saturday, July 22 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Building 24 studio G
[1 session for $65, this class is only offered 1 time as an intensive workshop]

Students use visual directions, graphic organizers, charts, and activities to determine the average length of a spin of their spinner. They will compare this to the class data to see which design styles and technique yield the longest spin time. Students will use this information to design the ideal fidget spinning! 

I will bring (5) fidget spinners (3D printed) to class, for students to perform experiments. Once the experiments are complete, we will design a custom fidget spinner!
