“Join us for a week where we will explore the intersection of art and technology. Technology is changing the way we make, experience, and share our ideas. But how do artists use it to shape their craft and the way their audiences experience it? Our creative camp Arts + Tech will introduce and encourage students to cultivate creative strategies, technical competencies and critical thinking skills while exploring and developing new applications of technology and media within contemporary art practice.”
