Teens will create interactive 2-D art using found objects and paint. Sound will be added to the visual imagery created through the use of Bare Conductive technology. Teens will utilize a water-based electric paint that, with the touch of a finger, will transmit pre-recorded sounds using Arduino-like Touch Boards. Teens will bring their art to life electronically by choosing different sounds to play through the circuit/sensor board.
