Illustrating Circuits: Holiday Cards

  • MODA 1315 Peachtree Street Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States (map)

Join us on December 3 from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. as we illustrate circuits to create light-up holiday cards!

Over the past few years, conductive materials like paint, fabric, thread, tape, and pens are being used to make circuits in brand new ways. These materials are enabling mind-blowing potential for artists, designers, and crafters to make quilts that tell stories, illustrations that light up, and so much more.

So join us as we make holiday cards that light up! You’ll learn some basics of graphic design, while also exploring how circuits work as you make a light-up design!

Bring your ideas and we’ll light up your Kwanza, Christmas, Hannukah, Yule, or Winter Wonderland cards!

Participation and Materials Fee:
$25 for non-members, $20 for MODA members. This fee covers everything you need to create and bring home your own awesome cards: cardstock, conductive tape, coin cell batteries, and LEDs. It also includes admission to MODA’s current exhibition, Text Me: How We Live In Language.

Appropriate for ages 13+. Please reach out to the facilitator, Jess Lewis ( jlewis@museumofdesign.org ) if you have questions or accessibility needs.
