Please join us on Saturday, September 7 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm for a free family art workshop for children, parents, grandparents and friends. The workshop is part of the on-going educational Family Workshops at Cascadia Art Museum.
This workshop, led by David Voetmann, industrial designer, teacher and manager of the Maker Space Lab at Edmonds Community, will demonstrate how to create objects through 3D printing. David and assistant teacher, Chuck Loomis, will discuss the simple computer basics of 3D. “The future is already here,” David said, “and, for me, it is always magical to scan an object into a computer then replicate it, bring it into this world, using the 3D printer.”
David and Chuck will provide handouts and demos to help everyone learn how to use a 3D technology to create art. “If participants bring an object for scanning – no bigger than a grapefruit – we’ll discuss how to scan it and, if possible, pull it into the computer on the spot,” David said, “and please bring your questions and be prepared for a fun technological and art experience.” The first 20 participants will walk away with swag made at The Makerspace at Edmonds Community College.
While you are at the museum, you can visit the current exhibitions Paintings from the Palouse: The Art of Andrew L. Hofmeister and Quiet Hour: The Photography of Yukio Morinaga as well as stop by the popular museum gift and book shop filled with books, art, jewelry, cards, exhibit prints and more.
