InterAccess says
This workshop series is divided into three sessions. Attendants are free to join at any point in the series, or partake in all three. All three workshops will have interdependent concepts, yet will each focus on a specific techniques used in creating interactive art.

In this series participants will be learn to work with the Arduino microcontroller to construct introduced to creative coding, circuit constructioncircuits using , sensors, and actuators, and passive components. We will also cover introductory coding in the Arduino IDE. Whether you are interested in robotics, sound, light art or just plain old tinkering, these workshops are a great place to develop your artistic ideas.


Intro to Arduino for Artists
Thursday November 5, 7-10pm

In this workshop you will learn the basics of working with the Arduino microcontroller board and the Arduino IDE software environment. You will learn how to hook up basic sensors and actuators to the Arduino and will learn to write code to control them. You will also have an opportunity to talk about your ideas and learn how to put them into action using Arduino.

Arduino Sensors Playground
Thursday November 12, 7-10pm

In this second workshop you will build on your skills by playing with a variety of interesting and increasingly complex sensors. You will work with motion sensors, proximity sensors, colour sensors, temperature sensors, accelerometers, and more. You will learn how to read and manipulate this data using fancier code that you will write yourself!

Arduino Expanded
Thursday November 19, 7-10pm

Going beyond the basics, this workshop we will look at the use of additional ICs and components required to drive motors, arrays of lights, or to extend the number of inputs/outputs on an Arduino board. This workshop is all about building additional circuitry to extend the functionality of Arduino.

Registration Fee:

$45 (Members - Single Workshop) + $5 materials fee = $50
$135 (Members - All 3 Workshops) + $15 materials fee = $150

$60 (Non-Members - Single Workshop) + $5 materials fee = $65
$180 (Non-Members - All 3 Workshops) + $15 materials fee = $195

Materials to Bring: None. Passive components and breadboards will be provided, along with Arduino microcontrollers.You are welcome to purchase the Arduino at the end of the workshop, if you like.

What to Bring: A laptop (Mac, PC, or Linux) with Arduino IDE installed. https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

About the Instructor: Gerald Grison is a new media artist whose practice incorporates sound, kinetics and optics. Finding inspiration from discarded electronics, his work focuses on the issues of technology and obsolescence. He graduated from the OCADU's Integrated Media program and has since taught introductory classes and workshops in electronics and physical computing at OCADU and at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto.
