A NEW Summer Camp from ROBOTS-4-U This unique program is a moving Art project, where children 7 to 12, build unique Art projects that are animated. Each project incorporates visual designs that the student arranges as their own creation and through a variety of devices ensures that this sculpture moves.
Our unique Dynamic Art program combines art and technology while challenging your child to explore the relationship of these ideas. Through this program your child will be given the experience of making moving sculptures. Artists such as Alexander Calder used this method for his ceiling mobiles, which are seen all over the country. Each child will be given the opportunity to explore their creativity while incorporating the exciting elements of technology. Through the use of motors, gears and pulleys your child will learn how to turn their art to an exciting new level. They will be making beautiful and fun unique sculptures that exist as art and decorative objects. This class will challenge the functionality of the creative process as well as being fun and rewarding. It is more than your basic children's art class.
Each kit contains motors, batteries, and circuits, which are essential to making moving sculpture as well as fun art tools such as construction paper, pipe cleaners, felt, pom poms, and googly eyes. All these items work together to create unique moving pieces of art and your child will closely examine the partnership between engineering and art. (less)... Read more
