Minecraft 3D Innovations Art and Design

Explore how Minecraft can be used as a 3D art and design tool. This unique program focuses on teaching participants to use Minecraft to create large-scale 3D (and 2D) objects and how to export their art into 3D design files that could be used in CAD software. Participants will build together and face-off in build battles and engineering challenges to create 3D replicas of real-world architecture, sculptures, engineering models and fun 2D sprites inspired by their favorite video game and cartoon characters. Each design can be exported into a standalone 3D file that can also be manipulated in 3D CAD software (and even viewed in virtual reality or printed on a 3D printer). This program focuses on building and creating artistic and technical-style art within Minecraft. Participants should have an interest in creating and crafting large builds and learning techniques that will enhance their works of art.
