Hands-On for Kids - Stories in 3D

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street GA United States (map)

Ages 8-12

Many of the stories we know and love take place in worlds quite different from our own. From enchanted forests to cities overrun by superheroes and super villains, these worlds often begin in our own imaginations, and can be difficult to express just using words. Get out of your head and into a workshop as we mix storytelling with 3D modeling!

We’re flipping creative writing on its head and starting with setting rather than characters. First, we’ll construct our own imaginary worlds. Using some of our favorite books and movies as inspiration, we’ll discuss what makes each world work, how they differ from our own, and the way we experience them. With sketches in hand, campers will be introduced to CAD using Tinkercad and design an aspect of their world. By the end of the class your creation will be ready to go to print, and in just two weeks you’ll be able to pick it up at MODA.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to craft a rich backdrop to their stories by imagining worlds and universes.

  • Explore aspects of set design and visualization 3D modeling and other materials

  • Develop Design Thinking mindsets.
