3-D Modeling and Ceramic Media

New technology is having a huge impact on the art industry.  KCAI has taken strides to include new technology in the teaching program.

The 3-D Modeling and Ceramic Media elective course teaches students to use Rhino, a 3-D modeling software program.  Students design models that are virtual representations of their ideas.
