Fabrice Florin gave a 20 min. presentation about Maker Art at the reMAKE Education Summit at 180 Studios in Santa Rosa, on Thursday, August 4, 2016.

About Maker Art
In our maker art classes at Tam Makers, we help students build miniature worlds with animated characters, then bring them to life with light, sounds, motion -- and stories. Kids combine art and electronics to create their own ‘wonderbox’. In some classes, we also coach them to make a City of the Future together. In the process, they get deeply engaged and develop a wider range of creative, technical and social skills in a playful way. In this talk, we shared what we learned together in our first maker art classes at Tam Makers in Mill Valley, California.
