3D design training for curators and artists

Overview

This workshop is designed to equip participants with initial sketchup skills. Using this program, participants will learn its creative potential, how to visualise installations remotely, create virtual walkthroughs, and reimagine gallery spaces with their curatorial vision. These skills can be applied in a multitude of ways including using it to make exhibition proposals, construction designs for plinths and dividers or as a digitized conceptual development tool.

About the tutor

​Aimee is a practicing artist and educator living and working on Gadigal land. She holds a Masters of Fine Art from National Art School in Drawing where she is a Sessional Lecturer.

Goals

- To equip curators with the skills to visualize and plan future exhibitions using simple 3D modeling technology. Using these techniques curators can create high quality renders, imagine curatorial possibilities and make the most of exhibition space.

- To assist with artists relationships and consultancy, especially for those working remotely. Artists and curators can develop projects from any location prior to installation.

Fees

These fees are for online delivery and may vary for in person workshops. Please contact Aimee for a quote. Interstate in person workshops can be arranged dependant on interest and for an additional fee. All classes have a maximum of 5 participants. 

Two hour: $100

Covers the controls and shortcuts for using the program, participants will make a simple gallery space and put several 2D works on the walls in a traditional hang. We will look at ‘styles’ and how to change the look of the model and its environment. From this users will be able to make still images of their model and go on to turn a floorplan into a 3D model.

Half day workshop: $175

In addition to the above participants will learn animation and make a short video that travels through the space as a digital walk through. We will introduce making 3D objects and the ‘warehouse’ from which users can download pre-made objects into their space.

Two half day workshops: $250

Participants will be guided in the second half day to make a working model of their chosen gallery space and prepare an exhibition plan for a show they intend to execute. They will will be introduced to textures and more complex modeling techniques, natural lighting and specific solutions for the artworks they are introducing to the space.
