Summer Session 2015

3D: Hand Production

Instructor: Kari Marboe
SF / CORES–108/ 23 sessions
Prerequisite: none
June 1-July 8, Mon.-Thurs., 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

This summer’s 3D: Hand Production includes the creation of human-powered machines, the whittling of wooden works with guest CCA faculty, and outdoor mapping adventures on both land and water. Students are introduced to new materials, become comfortable with a variety of tools, and develop their creative abilities through instruction, individual guidance, and play.

3D courses introduce fundamental concepts of three-dimensional art, design, and architecture. Using a variety of materials, processes, and tools, students investigate form and function including mass, weight, movement, balance, and structure. Students learn various construction methods and how to make effective material choices. Emphasis is on connecting intention with craft. Each of the 3D courses helps students create a safe studio practice and build professional time management skills. Research and iterative studies are designed to add depth to thinking and working processes. Students consider issues such as sustainable materials, reuse, diverse cultural contributions and how objects function in the world. (3 credits)

This course satisfies the 3D CORE Studio requirement or a Studio Elective.
