Full course description

City Summer Youth Academy is for students ranging from incoming 6th graders through currently enrolled high school students. CSYA is underwritten by a generous grant from the Wells-Fargo Foundation.


Advanced 3D Modeling 


Monday- Friday, 7/10-7/14/2023, 8:30am-11:00am, online 


Instructor: David Hurwich 

This is an advanced 3D modeling class that builds from the foundation skills taught in the entry level 3D modeling class. Students will delve into more complex 3D modeling concepts, including lighting, cameras, modifiers, and UV maps. Students will continue using the free, but powerful 3D application Blender.

At the end of the workshop students will have produced their own sophisticated 3D model. 

This will be a live synchronous course. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. They will also need to install the free cross-platform application Blender.
