About Art with Arduino

Art can be so much more than paintings or sculptures now-a-days. In this workshop you will make creative electronic art objects. These objects have the possibility to interact with the viewer through things like touch sensors, LED’s, motors, speakers and much more. We’ll be using beginner-friendly pocket-size computers called Arduinos to learn the very basics of software and hardware programming to create new and fun works of art!

Learning Process and Outcomes

Students will learn basic programming skills and be creatively challenged to use those skills. We will talk about the use of electronics in contemporary art so the students get an understanding of the relevancy of their new found skills. Students will be encourage to expand their understanding of what art and electronics are and how they can be combined into something so much more. 

Take-Home Creations

A unique work of art or two which will look cool and be fun to interact with!
