Learn how to create renderings of your artwork for proposals, submissions, and installations. We will be going over Rhino and Adobe Photoshop to create photo montages and realistic images.

This workshop aims to teach the essentials of creating 3D models for proposals, conceptual renderings, and aid for the planning of installations. We will go over how to read floor plans and how to translate these plans into basic 3D models. We will learn how to create objects in 3D which are representative of your artwork. We will also go over bringing images of a “site” or existing outdoor landscape and photo-montaging a 3D or existing image of artwork onto that site.
