Guided Exhibition Tour:
Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism
Join us for a guided tour of MODA's current exhibition, Making Change: The Art and Craft of Activism and learn about the ways in which artists and crafters are using traditional materials like yarn, glue guns, quilt patterns, sewing needles, X-ACTO knives, and other tools to protest social and political inequalities and injustices.
This exhibition is curated by Betsy Greer, author of Craftivism: The Art and Craft of Activism and is on view from June 3 through September 9, 2018.
This guided tour will address topics such as racism, police violence, immigration, war, feminism/women’s rights, LBGTQ rights, environmental issues, Native American rights, and much more. This content may be sensitive for younger audiences. If you'd like to walk through the exhibition with MODA's Education Coordinator, Blair Banks before bringing your group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Guided tours are limited to 30 persons, including participating chaperones. If your group is larger, please contact Blair Banks at email@example.com to discuss possible accommodations.
Soft Circuits (Grades K-2)
Join us as we use coin cell batteries, LEDs, aluminum foil, conductive and insulating play-doh to design your own functioning! Get hands-on experience making, testing, and refining circuits that highlight basic electronic properties. Students will take home their own working flashlights!
Soft Circuits (Grades 3+)
Soft circuits are also known as electronic textiles — a way to craft your own versatile wearable accessories. Join us as we explore how to design soft circuit buttons. Learn sewing, circuitry basics, and how to combine them both on this field trip! Explore everything from running stitches and tying off thread to the science behind circuits and how to create different kinds from series to parallel.
Chaperones that will be participating in the workshop will be charged $10/person, while non-participating chaperones are free.
This workshop is limited to 30 persons.
Introduction to 3D Design and Printing Workshop
At MODA, we're 100% on board with the Maker Movement's manifesto, which says that "making is fundamental to what it means to be human." We believe that one of the best ways to explore a problem and to find solutions is by using your hands to make, learn, and explore.
Our 3D printing workshop provides an introduction to designing in 3 dimensions. Students will learn how a 3D printer works and participate in a 3D modeling demo with MODA instructors using the computer aided design (CAD) program, Tinkercad. Students will work collaboratively to design an item for their community that MODA will print and mail.
Chaperones that will be participating in the workshop will be charged $15/person, while non-participating chaperones are free.
This workshop is limited to 30 persons.
