OCT 1, 2016 12pm – 4pm Vancouver Art Gallery | 750 Hornby Street Annex workshop: FREE No registration required
Join the Gallery’s Art Educators as we experiment with a range of simple yet dynamic mechanical drawing machines and robots. As the machines shake, shuffle and spin use them to create an assortment of abstract drawings. Also have an opportunity to meet Dan and his drawing machine ‘Makelangelo’. Dan Royer wants to use remote control robots to build his moon base. Through marginallyclever.com Dan and his team explain their achievable plan and teach electronics, programming, design, mechatronics, and more.
Participants of all ages and experience are welcome.
