Intro to 3D Gallery DesignInstructor: Margaret Middleton
April 4, 2021 - May 1, 2021
Planning how your exhibit will fill a physical space can be challenging. Digital tools can make the gallery planning process more streamlined and help you communicate your ideas to colleagues, visitors, and funders.
In this course participants will draft a 3D model of a gallery, lay out cases in the gallery, and create presentation materials to share their gallery plan with colleagues.
As a participant you will come away with:
- SketchUp skills, a great addition to your resume
- 3D model of a gallery in your museum that you can use again and again
- professional looking floorplans
- 3D animated flythrough of your gallery plan
- images for your portfolio
