Art in Motion


Art in Motion is a project-based curriculum designed to authentically integrate computer science into art classes. Students design and create robots using strategies and process for any art project: sketching, journaling, revision, peer critique, etc. In this hands on session, participants will learn how to implement Art in Motion in their classroom by creating their own robot using two Austin public works of art - Kempelen's Owls and Golden Afternoon.
