Digital Sculpting

Digital sculpting tools are heavily used in the entertainment industry to create realistic models of characters and creatures featured in today’s video games, animations, and films. In this workshop, students are introduced to an array of digital modeling, sculpting, and painting techniques to create 3D character models that they can then print using a 3D printer. Students will also learn fundamental art skills relevant to character and creature design to help ensure that their work looks amazing.

Students will learn:
  • Virtual product design
  • Creature anatomy and structure
  • Digital sculpting techniques
  • 3D printing processes


This course is open to students entering Grades 8 through 12.
