Aaaaand, speaking of video, light, sound and art at ACCR, they’ve just published their fall-winter class catalog and it’s a doozy. Drawing, dance, cooking, pottery, woodworking, yoga, stained glass, Jewelry-making, writing… you name it, it’s probably there. There are classes for children and teens, beginners and advanced.

Here are three classes that caught our eye:

    Instructor: Peter Edwards

    Circuit bending is the experimental process of short-circuiting and re-wiring audio
    electronics for the purpose of discovering unintended, often bizarre functionalities.
    The process is fun and inventive and often leads to new forms of musical expression
    and interaction. Instructor Peter Edwards will cover the basics of bending and
    help participants through the design and modii cation process. Each student will
    received a soldering iron and a set of basic circuit bending tools to keep, and will
    transform one item they bring with them into a unique musical instruments. This
    class is beginner friendly but previous experience with electronics and simple hand
    tool use is helpful.
