Make Your Own Art Wonderbox
To help young people create interactive art, Pataphysical Studios taught a workshop on how to make your own ‘ art wonderbox.’ Our goal was to help kids create a cool experience with lights, motion and sounds, using simple electronic parts.

To that end, we invited 12 kids (ages 8 to 12) and their parents to this free workshop at the Mill Valley Library:

This two-hour workshop took place on Saturday, October 17 at 2pm. In the course of two hours, we guided students through these tasks:

Instructors for this workshop were Fabrice Florin, Jean Bolte and Natalie Frederick, with support from Antonia Souza and Freddy Hahne. They are all members of Pataphysical Studios, the art collective behind the ‘Pataphysical Slot Machine’, our poetic oracle.

Come visit the exhibit this month! We’re open every Saturday and Sunday in October, from 1 to 5pm, in the downstairs conference room of the Mill Valley Library.

Special thanks to the Mill Valley Library and the Friends of the Library for making these workshops possible.
