Paper Circuitry: Adding Light and Interactivity To Paper Craft
June 17, 2018 – June 23, 2018
This course combines art with electronics by using conductive tapes and LED stickers to build beautiful, functioning circuits. You will learn to add LED light, craft paper switches and simple sensors that add interactivity to the paper medium. You will explore the possibilities of using technology to make artwork come to life through projects like glowing posters and interactive cards. For those who have little-to-no experience building electronics, but want to learn more, this workshop is for you! Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
