Brandon’s Coding Workshop for Kids

Ages 10 – 15
$20 per student ($16 Member)
In this 3D modeling workshop students will learn how to create and print their own 3D art, using Sculptris software, a computer and a 3D printer. Because 3D printing can take time, all models may not be available after class and students may need to pick up their artwork at a later time.
