SP09 Amplifying CPS Through Drawing, Painting, Model Building and Sculpting

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come and use hands-on craft skills and art-making experiences to express your ideas in the context of creatively solving problems. While today's current technology provides access to huge amounts of data, it falls short in its ability to quickly and economically manipulate two- and three-dimensional objects. Our prehistoric ancestors, in contrast, basically moved to become modern through the hands-on use of materials to create inventions. This may soon become a lost art. In this session, recover some of this for yourself. Beyond the playtime, arts and crafts provide another language to enable Creative Problem Solving. This visual and tactile aspect amplifies the linguistic understanding of a problem and provides a gateway to explore solutions non-verbally. You will:
• Apply visual techniques through all steps of the CPS process.
• Integrate art and craft techniques to create strong and effective presentations.
• Create multi-view drawings.
