Time: 9AM – 3PM
Light up your artistic world in this experimental and inventive workshop! We make use of creative hardware, including Arduinos, motors, sensors, LEDs, jumper cables and more to make interactive artworks. We incorporate the basics of electricity, animation and programming to build interactive systems that can respond to the analog world. Students create artful robots that draw, a Rube Goldberg machine, light-up postcards and more! Combine technology and traditional artistic processes to create art of the future.
