Make It Move! Introduction To Motors For Artists says
In this workshop we’ll explain some basic principles of mechanics, then go on to explain how different types of motors work. We'll talk about how to select the right kind of motor to do the job. We'll talk about the mechanics of connecting the motor to whatever it is you want to move. Then we'll talk about some of the circuits needed to control different types of motors. We'll also discuss how to use the Arduino microcontroller to control speed and direction of DC motors, servomotors and stepper motors. We'll suggest good sources for all kinds of motors.

Participants will have an opportunity to experiment with different types of motors.
