Microcontrollers, like Arduino, have made it possible to create practically any electronic device all by ourselves. By using programming code to digitally control electronic components, we can make things move, talk, or light-up with just a few lines of text, but these overwhelming possibilities are also why getting started with microcontrollers and electronics can be so intimidating!

Starting with the basics of writing code, wiring, and circuit design, Arduino for Artists will introduce techniques for incorporating electronics and microcontrollers into art projects. We’ll go over electronic components, like DC motors, servos, and LEDs. And after learning how to add lights, motion, and interactive sensors to your work, we’ll combine them into a finished art project!

This month-long hybrid in-person and online class will meet in person on September 12, 26, and October 3 from 9:30am-5:30pm with online components and check-ins in-between the sessions.
