Session Four (July 5 - July 7) : Modern Design (half week)
In this series you will learn about form and volume in modern designs pulling from architectural inspirations like the work of Zaha Hadid and Frank Gehry. Both art and architecture will be the basis of our exploration into the world of modern design and the week will culminate in you creating your own modern 3D piece of art work!
Session Five (July 10 - July 14) : Sports & Games
This fun week long series explores making your own games through 3D printing and 3D modeling. We will teach you how to make your table top basketball and soccer games and even your own chess set.

Session Seven (July 24 - July 28) : Objects for your Room
Why buy things for your room when you can design and 3D print them yourself! Learn to 3D design and 3D print things like votive candle holders, mugs, lamps and more with our KiraKira instructors. The week will culminate with you 3D printing your own design for your bedroom!
Session Eight (July 31 - August 4): Fairy Tales in 3D
Cap off the summer with a magical fairy tale experience! We'll draw fashion inspiration from renowned favorites (think Frozen and Cinderella!) From there we will brainstorm, sketch, turn those sketches into 3D models and then use 3D printing and sewing to bring our designs to life!
