With the help of the Kenmore West High School multimedia arts program, Lindbergh Elementary School fourth-graders are being introduced to 3D modeling and printing.

Art teachers David Rogalski from Kenmore West and Lavinia Kirdani from Lindbergh have partnered to pilot the framework, not just to spark interest in multimedia arts and technology among the younger students but also to give them a new medium to express their creativity.

During a series of sessions, Rogalski and some of his students help the fourth graders use the sophisticated 3D modeling software. Once their work is complete, they will receive a real life model of their design generated by one of the high school’s 3D printers.

It is one way that cutting edge technology is being incorporated in elementary schools. Kirdani’s students are also using Autodesk Sketchbook Express to explore digital design.

Multimedia arts is a central component of the high school art curriculum with courses such as Animation & Illustration, Multimedia Studio in Art, and Advanced Multimedia as part of the course sequences that make up the Ken-Ton School District’s two art career pathways: the Fine Arts Pathway and the Media Arts Career Pathway.
