Teaching Artist: K. Shabazz

Shine bright like a diamond… Or at least a 3D printed one. Step into Digital’s new Tech Suite to create your very own 3D bling. This is a jewelry making class with a twist—you’ll be using an innovative process called additive manufacturing (otherwise known as 3D printing) to create original pieces to wear and share. Design and print unique pieces while learning how to use this exciting new technology.

Experience a smorgasbord of digital art processes. Each week you’ll have an opportunity to try something new: graphic design, digital music making, video editing, 3D modeling, additive manufacturing, laser cutting and engraving, and more. You’ll experience software such as Adobe Photoshop and Premiere, Sony Acid, and Sculptris—an incredible program where you virtually sculpt. Create prints, posters, buttons, keychains, jewelry, sculptures, videos, and more.

Anime Appreciation

Are you ready to go Super Saiyan with your artwork? We’re talking large-format, full-color posters. Not ready for that? You can hone your skills by sketching in your own hardbound sketchbook. When you’re ready, you can scan your art and use Photoshop to make it evolve into a whole new species. Then unlock the magic Wacom tablet to defeat the mighty Ganon… Err, to unlock your hidden potential.
