DESCRIPTION
Join us for a night of creating machines that draw & paint. Successfully make a DrawBot art-generating machine & your hands will be free for more-you guessed it-drinking!

SUGGESTED DONATION: $20
THIS EVENT IS OPEN FOR ALL ADULTS 21+

All levels of experience with electronics, drawing, & drinking are welcome. Supplies will be provided by us. All donations support free & low-cost programming at Open Source!

This event will be led by Eric Wood. Eric is a front end engineer, a tinkerer & displaced Austinite. Sometimes he makes music even, but really he just wants to build cool things.

This event is inspired by our BitBots after school program. Open Source Gallery has taught BitBots workshops in multiple schools, the MoMA, The Cooper Hewitt Design Center, the Children's Museum of Manhattan, & at a TEDxYouth Day event at the Brooklyn Museum. It is a STEAM initiative that invites students to innovate, prototype, iterate, design & incorporate new technology with other materials to make something that does something. We use littleBits, simple electronic modules, each with specific functions, which can be snapped together with magnets to create large & elaborate circuits for prototyping & play. At Drink & DrawBots, we create generative art (created with the use of an automonous system) by created DrawBots that can often function as sculptures in their own right.
