ART203: 3-D DESIGN: TECH + FORM + FASHION

This course offers innovative studio projects in 3-D design, architecture, contemporary sculpture, and apparel.

This course offers innovative studio projects in 3-D design, architecture, contemporary sculpture, and apparel. The relationship between form and function and the visualization of concepts are fundamental for each studio project. Students learn architectural rendering and building techniques to construct functional artworks using mat board, cardboard, wire, adhesives, found objects, plastic, wood, vinyl and foam board. The 3-D Printing Studio offers students the opportunity to design and print objects using this new technology and cutting-edge art tool with colored filament and design software. Reuse and sustainability are infused throughout the term. Projects include sneaker/shoe models, proposal sketches, font design, dwelling models, team projects, and executing and modeling final works both in and out of the studio. During the term, students collaboratively design and install a unique site-specific project on campus that investigates spaces and places. The term concludes with an apparel runway exhibit and the creation of a ‘look book’ to showcase wearable works of art. A rich variety of materials and creative, challenging projects offer the opportunity to create a smart, vibrant design portfolio of 3-D structures. In lieu of textbooks, there is a materials fee of $155.
