3D Digital Art: Design and Modeling with TinkerCAD

Grades 4-10

Dream it. Design it. Create it! This program will introduce you to the basics of 3D design and architecture, with a focus on designing real world objects, 3D buildings and provide an introduction to creating basic characters. Participants will use TinkerCAD software to create 3D designs. Then, work together as a team of innovators to engineer cool three-dimensional cityscapes and other objects, devices, or gadgets. Find your inner 3D artist as we conceptualize and realize our own multidimensional art. No prior experience is necessary! All skill levels are welcome.
