As an introduction to their sculpture unit, Art 7/8 and Art 1 students experimented with using the emerging technology of 3D printing to create miniature sculptures. They learned how 3D printing is being used in not only in art, but in science and medicine as well. Students used Tinkercad, a 3D modeling software to create original sculpture designs. They worked in the computer lab for 2 days creating their designs in early March. It took a team of teachers two weeks to print the finished sculptures. Thanks to Linda Kay and Robin Young for their help in bringing this cool experience to our art department!
