AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Baker College of Auburn Hills will present two free seminars about digital art and technology. The seminars are open to the public and will be held at Baker College’s Technology Building, 1195 Centre Road, Auburn Hills, Mich. 48326.

The seminars are:

  • Thursday, April 24, 6-7:30 p.m. – Digital Arts and Technology: Experiences of a Digital Artist
  • Monday, May 5, 6-7:30 p.m. – 3-D Printing is Changing Everything

“New technology is affecting nearly all areas of art, design and communications,” said Beth Nuccio, director for career services at Baker College of Auburn Hills. “Attending these seminars is a great way to learn about some of these emerging technologies and how they can be used in everyday life and in business.”

Reservations to attend a seminar are suggested and can be made by contacting Cathy Selina, 248.276.8216 or .

Digital artist Randall Rockafellow will present the April 24 seminar. He is manager of animation and computer-generated imagery (CGI) at LaDriere in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and a freelance 3-D animator and interactive web 3-D designer.

Rockafellow will share his professional experiences, discuss employment opportunities for digital artists, show examples of art and animation used in marketing and advertising, and provide career suggestions for aspiring digital artists.

The May 5 seminar, 3-D Printing is Changing Everything, will be presented by professional creatives and instructors of Baker College’s digital media and information technology programs.

“3-D printing is decreasing manufacturing development times, allowing products to get to market more quickly,” Nuccio said. “However, because the cost of 3-D printing is becoming affordable to a broader market, this technology is set to revolutionize many other areas of business and our everyday lives.”

“Soon, anyone, anywhere in the world with 3-D printing capabilities and know-how will be able to produce any object they need on demand. This has the potential of creating what some have characterized as the ‘Third Industrial Revolution.’”

The basics of 3-D printing will be explained at the seminar and examples will be shared of current and potential use.
