TECHNOLOGY IN THE ARTS

Big Weekend at ESAC!

ESAC traded in paint brushes for coin cell batteries and copper tape during our celebration of technology and the arts.  Visiting artist, Elijah Phillips, illuminated students as he guided them in the construction of LED lighted paintings.

On Friday, Fairhope Youth Rotary and First Friday Kid’s Lab electrified ESAC with their robotic artwork.

On Saturday, ESAC artists and Baldwin County teachers explored more in depth projects and alternate materials in the workshop “Technology in the Arts”.
