This is a two session introduction to Blender, a full featured 3D design tool. Blender is open source (free!) and very sophisticated. It is used for computer animation, game development, and 3D modeling. You will learn the basics: installation, general use of the tool, and explore modeling, textures, lighting and general rendering.
Each of the two sessions are 2 hours in length.
After the first session, students should be able create and render their first 3D model.
After the second session, students should be able to animate, light, and texture a basic 3D model. This will be a hands-on class, so the students will have a good mix of learning through observation and by doing. A 3-button mouse (with scroll wheel) is recommended.
