Description

Creating With Digital Technologies helps students become more familiar with various ways of creating art digitally. We will be using Elegoo 3D Printers, Glowforge Laser Cutter, and Cricut Cutting Machines throughout the term. In this course we will go over the basics of using Blender, a 3D design program. We will also explore more in-depth tools and techniques for creating 3D objects with Nomad, a popular app on the Ipad for digital creations. To aid in our creations we will be working in Procreate, another popular app on the Ipad. We will also be working in Adobe Illustrator to help with solidifying designs for use on the cutting machines. We will be using iPad and Mac computers for most of our digital creations. If Students have these applications, iPad, and Apple Pencil, they are more than welcome to bring their own equipment. Students can expect to complete at least three main projects. 

1. Laser Cutter project. This project is where students can learn the capabilities of the laser cutter for engraving images and cutting through acceptable material. This project may be expanded into several projects where materials can be layered to form a scene or whimsical creature from the students imagination. 

2. Sticker Project. Students will be able to design a sticker from scratch using their own ideas. They will design the sticker in Procreate. From there we will incorporate different methods to format and layout the stickers for cutting on the Cricut cutting machines. 

3. 3D Printing Project. In Nomad and Blender, we will be working to design a 3D object. The object that we create in the digital space is possible to become a real object through the help of a 3D Printer. We will be using a resin printer which uses a UV hardening liquid to create highly detailed objects.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, Creating With Digital Technology is worth getting a hands-on-look at what is possible with digital creation. We look forward to having you there!
