3D Printing and Ceramic Media - 3DP + Clay

Offered as part of the Educator Art Lab through the Kansas City Art Institute's  School of Continuing Professional Studies
July 25-29, 2016

Course Description:

Participants in this course will learn basics of 3D modeling and 3D printing. Projects will be based around applications for 3D Printing particular to Ceramic Media, but general strategies for 3D modeling and 3D printing will be discussed as well. Participants will learn to operate and troubleshoot the operation of a Fused Filament 3D Printer, and discuss other methods and technologies for 3D Printing. Using 3D Printing, participants will create a library of tools for working with clay. By the course conclusion, participants will have created objects and artworks using the 3D Printed tools in bisc and unfired clay. 

In addition to making works in clay, participants will use what they have learned to develop new projects using 3D Printing for specific classroom conditions.

The class location will switch between the Jannes Library Computer Lab and the Stern Ceramics Studio, with classes primarily in the Library in the mornings, and primarily in the Ceramics Studio in the afternoon/evening.
