Workshop: Color and Light STEAM

January 29, Tuesday, 10-3

Led by artist/educator Jill Dawson, this two-part workshop will provide teachers with fresh new insights to spark creative expression. It will combine low-tech paper and fabric with the whimsical magic of circuitry, imbuing creations with color and light. Participants will learn how to apply copper tape, conductive thread, and LEDs (light emitting diodes) into their own electrified paper circuits and textiles (eTextiles). Practical suggestions for bringing electronics into the classroom will be shared and circuitry basics will be explored.

Jill Dawson is an educator, artist, and maker. Licensed as a middle and secondary humanities teacher, Dawson holds an endorsement as a technology integration specialist, and is a recent graduate of Marlboro College’s MATT program. Since 2014, Dawson has been playing with code, experimenting with creative applications for circuitry, and teaching interactive workshops in a variety of Vermont schools.
