ARTS 499: Makerspace – NEW Informatics/ ArtEd Course for Fall 2014

Informatics and Art Education are collaborating on a new course this fall to be taught out of the CU Community Fab Lab on campus!  The course is offered in the 8 week format, both in the 1st and 2nd half of the semester.

Students who register for the course will:

  • Develop understanding of principles and processes behind prototyping
  • Hack together and implement tools, ideas and proposals for workshops
  • Critique, test and report on real-world examples of makerspace curriculum
  • Practice multiple styles of expressions for different real-world contexts
  • Gain familiarity with open source and proprietary software
  • Learn about digital literacy, community-based art education, informatics and the design of makerspaces from an interdisciplinary perspective

There are still plenty of open seats! Registration information, including days/ time of class meetings can be viewed here.  There are no pre-requisites, and this course counts as one of the upper level electives in the Informatics minor.  Check out the course materials here!
