RoboLab: Art (online)

We asked a group of professional artists to dream up the class they wish they had when they were kids. The only parameters were that each class had to include making a simple robot and have hands-on art activities that kids would find approachable and fun. The results are this incredible online class – RobotLab: Art!

Students will get an in-depth look at a different artist or genre of art each week, with a focus on artists of color and other marginalized populations. We will be making a robot and an art project within our theme each week. Sometimes we’ll use the robot to make our artwork. Other times, the robot will serve as an illustration of the concepts we’re exploring within the art. And sometimes the robot will become the art itself! This hands-on exploration will inspire creativity and further experimentation, using a variety of media.

Classes will be held in 4-week sessions. and are open to students 8-12 years old of all artistic abilities. We currently offer THREE different versions of this class: Museum, Gallery, and Pavilion, which can be taken in any order. We hope to continue to introduce additional versions, so students can enjoy this program over a full year.

$160 ($120 program fee + $40 materials) for each 4-week session
