Monster Making with Spencer Garland is a comprehensive course of character modeling using the open-source 3D program Blender. Over this three-day course, students will first learn how to use the interface of Blender and then learn how to make models of your designs based on drawings or pictures. Students will be encouraged to create monsters based on their own fears or interests.

Instructor: Spencer Garland
Spencer Garland is an interdisciplinary artist and educator operating in Portland, OR. Being inspired to pursue film at age 3 out of a deep sense of disenfranchisement and othering, Garland has successfully blended artistic and cultural influences into his work. With a combination of 3D rendering, clothing design, coding, and writing, Garland brings his unique vision of new Black narratives to life. His greatest accomplishment is the formation of his Black art school, BRENDA ARTS.
