MaKey MaKey Musical Paintings

Want to make a painting come to life?

Mix art with tech in this very special MaKey MaKey Workshop – Musical Paintings. MaKey MaKey is an invention kit for the 21st century that turns everyday objects into touchpads and connects them with the internet.

In this 1.5 hour class, young designers in grades 3-5 will use one of MODA’s MaKey MaKey electronic circuit boards to infuse their paintings with music. Using electrically conductive paint and other conductive materials, participants will explore mixed media art forms, visual and audio literacy, while gaining an understanding of basic electronics.

Using MaKey MaKey to tinker and invent, young designers will:

Tinker with designs, computer programs, and electronic circuitry

Prototype, test, and refine their designs

Learn how electricity is conducted and what materials are conductive

Improve logic skills

Learn through experimentation and invention

Develop the vocabulary that describes basic electronics

Test the conductivity of everyday materials and learn how electricity flows through materials and how it makes things happen.
