ART 102 Beginning Computer Aided Design for Artists (3)
Students are introduced to the exciting realm of digital 3D design. The class explores the computer as an artistic media as students learn a CAD application. Projects will address the themes of form, function and the aesthetics of design while also gaining an introduction to contemporary sculpture and computer mediated design happening in the art world now. Students are guided through the creation of a variety of objects from chess pieces to cars. Objects created during the class, in a computer application, are then realized tangibly through various output systems including 3D printing, vinyl cutting, and laser engraving. While no prior CAD experience is required students should be aware that all of the art created in class is done on a computer. Students in all areas of study, especially those interested in any aspect of art or engineering, are encouraged to register.
