(Students should bring their own lunch each day.)
- Chemistry and Art: Unleash your inner artist – and learn some chemistry too. How can Art and Chemistry be related? This interdisciplinary course investigates the science of materials that go into the making of art media and materials. It also develops the student’s artistic knowledge and skills while completing a studio art project that reinforces the chemical properties that they are learning.
- Sculpture – Abstract In Its Natural Form: Explore what can happen when you blend synthetic materials and the natural world. Here you will discover the possibilities of creating a sculpture that is influenced by our environment. Various processes and materials will be used, including GMAW / MIG welding. Create a sculpture that is in motion and inspired by the world around us.
- FabLab - Forms and Fluctuations: Start with an idea and then turn it into reality using the FabLab and digital fabrication. Begin with a group projects and then design and fabricate a personal project using the CNC routers, laser engravers, and 3D printers.
