Course Description/Objectives:

Prerequisite:  

Be familiar with your Windows computer and have good control of your mouse. If you do not have Paint 3D on your computer, you need to install this free app from the Microsoft Windows store.

You want to be creative but you don’t know how: how about trying computer art? With Paint 3D, you can create and edit 2D (two-dimensional) and 3D (three dimensional) images. These are images with three axes: X (horizontal), Y (vertical) and Z (in and out of the display). You can rotate a 3D object on your screen, and Paint 3D carries a whole library of models that you can practice with. You can create graphics with your grandchildren, friends, and family. You can even create your own animated GIFs and logos! Then you can show off your creations in an online community, and get advice from others.

Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Use the tools that make 2D/3D creations fast and easy
  •  Manipulate contents on the Canvas
  • Change the perspective and scale of the Canvas
  • Select brushes, colors, and materials for your content
  • Find and select stickers from the app and from your own files
  • Create and adjust text for your content
  • Work with 3D models
  • Use the 3D library
