Artists are some of the most experimental and innovative creators of technology – repurposing, tinkering and expanding our perceptions of this ever-changing field. To coincide with a major exhibition of leading international artists working in the medium, QUT Art Museum together with The Cube are running these workshops for senior students.

In this workshop students will learn how to use littleBits – electronic modules that snap together to create circuits – to design and build interactive artworks that make noise, light up and respond to movement. Students will learn about the basics of circuitry, motors and motion and encouraged to experiment with materials, techniques and technologies to create a work that represents their artistic intentions.

This program is held at QUT Art Museum and includes a tour of the exhibitions: Why future still needs us: AI and humanity and Machination.

Curriculum-connected activities relevant to students taking Visual Art, History, Design and Technologies.
Learning outcomes related to: Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability; Critical and creative thinking; Personal and social capability; Ethical understanding.

Artists are some of the most experimental and innovative creators of technology — repurposing, tinkering and expanding our perceptions of this ever-changing field. To coincide with a major exhibition of leading international artists working in the medium, QUT Art Museum together with The Cube will offer this one-day masterclass.

Educators will learn how to use littleBits — electronic modules that snap together to create circuits — and be inspired by cross-curricula learning and teaching that can be implemented in the classroom. The masterclass will provide hands-on experimentation with littleBits and everyday materials to develop interactive artworks that make noise, light up and respond to movement.

This program is held at QUT Art Museum and includes a tour of the exhibitions: Why future still needs us: AI and humanity and Machination.

Artwork in a box: William Robinson features reproductions of pages from the visual diaries of acclaimed Queensland-based artist William Robinson. These rarely seen works on paper reveal Robinson's process work and everyday observations, captured quickly through gestural marks and notes made using graphite and watercolours.

There are two different art-making activities to choose from. In each, students create sketches and draw inspiration directly from the processes, techniques and ideas that Robinson has explored through his visual diary.
