Creative Contraptions

Megabytes and Gigabytes Level

ALL DAY 16th July

with Tanya Schultz

Cost $78 ($74 course cost plus materials fee $6)

What happens when machines produce art? Who is the artist? Using things that spin, sway, vibrate, and roll we will make a series of simple machines that draw for us. We will tinker with old toys, battery-powered motors, and household objects to create devices that make art. We will also look at artists that are interested in the process of art-making as much as the outcome. This class will be hands-on fun – art with a little bit of science thrown in.

You will need to bring an art shirt to protect your clothes.  You will also need to bring your imagination!

In this workshop you may be using hot glue guns, hammers or drills depending on your contraption.

Tanya is a practicing artist, working across a wide range of disciplines including painting, installation, photography and drawing. Her work has been exhibited at many galleries both locally and nationally. She is also one half of the collaborative duo Pip & Pop, who create colourful and detailed installations.
