Robots For The Future (Art, 5-11 yrs)
Monday 6th April, 9.15am - 3.45pm, £50
Inspired by the recent Tate Modern exhibition and the work of Nam June Paik, draw, design and make a robot reflecting the artist’s wish to make technology more accessible. Use multimedia junk modelling and collaged digital imagery to make the model. Think about the tasks that you might want your robot to complete and how it could change the world! Mix eclectic inspiration including art, design, technology, science and environmental issues. Use a sketchbook to incorporate and document all your inspiration, ideas and robot creations. Create a fold out instruction leaflet and packaging for your robot inspired by the works of digital and multimedia artists Andy Warhol, ‘60s collective Fluxus and more.

Create Computerized Beats (Music, 8-14 yrs)
Tuesday 14th April, 9.30am - 3.30pm, £50
A generation ago all music was recorded with real instruments, now samples and music production mean that very little of what you hear is ‘played’ directly…the ‘Digital Future’ is arriving. Together we will experiment with different instruments and styles all from one computer, creating new contemporary digital music using Afrobeats, Dancehall, Trap and Hip Hop as inspiration. We will work with loops, samples and record our own voices to add effects including autotune and pitch shift, to collectively construct an original track. Bring any instruments you play, and we may incorporate them. Our goal is to complete one finished track and upload it to YouTube to amaze your friends and family. No prior musical knowledge needed, just come and find out how creative you can be!
