Professional Automotive Clay Modeling Student
The two-semester class is comprised of four clay modeling projects including a pyramid, a door-cut, a speed form we designed, and finally a production/concept vehicle of our choosing in quarter scale. In this class, we learn the fundamentals of modeling in clay. We also learn how to use various tools including splines, rakes, steels, squares, metric and sae rulers/scales, and a plethora of shop equipment ranging from power drills and palm sanders, to band and table saws.
High school students were given the opportunity to participate in their favorite field of study during the summer months of the year (june through august). I participated in the Transportation Design field and took classes dealing with automotive design including analog and digital sketching, automotive history, portfolio development, beginner alias, and doing a 1/8 scale clay model of a vehicle I designed.
