Courses for Adults
3D modeling and printing have arrived at MCG! This course will cover programs like 123D Design, Tinkercad, and Sculptris. After designing your 3D artwork—including lamp shades, 3D bling, and bird feeders—you will have the opportunity to bring it to life with one of ten 3D printers in our newly remodeled Tech Suite. We will also cover 3D scanning; you could become a 3D bust or even an action figure!
Whether you’re a total beginner or an experienced potter, you’ll have a great time at MCG. Although we tend to gravitate towards wheel throwing and functional pottery, you are welcome to create hand-built ornamental and sculptural work, as well. Works made in this class will be high-fired in our gas kiln so they’ll look great and also be microwave and dishwasher safe.
Get introduced (or reintroduced) to the world of photography. In this class you’ll create images on metal (tintype) as well as on glass (ambrotype). Create digital transparencies and 35 mm prints in our fully-equipped darkroom, and learn digital workflow using Adobe Lightroom, Bridge, and Photoshop. You’ll become better acquainted with your own camera, and walk away with gallery-quality prints.
