3D Design Studio Minor

From metal to hardwood and everything in between, you bring art to life. This minor is for the design of physical 3D spaces and objects, such as everyday products (industrial design, furniture design) and the built environment (architecture, interior design, landscape architecture). When you learn 3D design at Gordon, you'll immerse yourself in a vibrant and dynamic environment that encourages creativity, fosters innovation, and equips you with advanced technical skills to bring your imaginative concepts to life.

Through the lens of your faith, you will enhance your experience of art with conceptual, spatial, analytical and technical skills in the production of creative visual expression of art in three dimensions. 

Why learn 3D design at Gordon?

Art is integral to our calling as followers of Jesus. We were made by our maker to be makers, and making art brings us closer to the heart of God’s creativity. Why is the natural world overflowing with beauty and aesthetic pleasure? The simple answer is that God cares about beauty and aesthetic pleasure. We believe that art-making is a way of following God, and we seek to emulate God’s way of creating with beauty, purpose and functionality. And because we’re rooted in the Christian liberal arts, we also consider art-making to be essential to broader learning in areas like theology, philosophy, psychology, literature and languages. Plus, Gordon’s location on Boston’s picturesque North Shore offers you exposure to nearby galleries, art colonies and museums (including free access to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston). 

Be inspired and get ready to think bigger than you ever thought possible, discovering great joy in the process. You will roll up your sleeves in the studio and prepare to launch into your creative career with a killer portfolio, channeled passion and tools to thrive.
