Creative Programming Workshop
About the Workshop
This class will introduce you to computer programming to the Arduino world. You'll learn the basics, build your first project, and so much more. The class will consist of simple lessons where students can gain a diverse set of skills for them to using in their next art project. The course will start with simple exercises in basic breadboard wiring and coding inputs and outputs. All materials will be provided. Students will leave with a basic understanding of programming an Arduino and additional resources to continue their exploration in discovering new ways to incorporate technology into their creative projects.
This workshop is supported by the Urgent Art Fund administered by SPACES and supported by residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
About the Instructor
Scott Goss is a interdisciplinary artist whose work explores various mediums including public art, sculpture, installations, and glass. Scott is interested in our collective curiosity and how we use technology to as a tool for connecting with each other. He is a self-taught computer programmer that regularly incorporates modified electronic components within his sculptural work. His works are experiential in design, encouraging viewers to explore them by opening doors, crawling through narrow hallways or peering through small windows. He received his BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2006 and his MFA from Kent State University in 2014. His work has been exhibited nationally and is represented by galleries in Akron, Cleveland, Columbus, and Pittsburgh.
