Giving Children a Chance to Experience Making 3D Art

3D Art Opportunities for Children

Technology has come a long way since I was a child. My dad was an engineer and could also fix or build anything he thought of. So, as a child, I witnessed a lot of his ideas come to fruition. I would sit on the floor in his workshop with some nails, wood and a hammer to create my own masterpieces. Looking back, I know that no one other than me would have had a clue what I had made (sometimes, I did not even know what I had made. haha). I just enjoyed getting to pretend like my dad. My dad now has a 3D printer and my children want to create masterpieces, too! Never in a million years, did I expect my children to have the opportunity to create 3D art out of plastic like they can with the 3Doodler… where I can actually TELL what they created!
