Maker Camp: A Week of Art and Design

This week’s Art and Design week on Maker Camp produced some great hangouts and lots of cool projects from the growing Maker Camp community on Google+. You’re a member, aren’t you? Have a look at some of the projects and art makers made this past week and stay tuned for Maker Camp Monday as we kick off DIY Music week.

Ari Bari began a paper mâché project a few weeks ago and it’s finished now for all to see. Nice work! It gives me some ideas of faux taxidermy I might make with my kids for their rooms.

My ‘cereal box’ robots from Day one of Art and Design week at Maker Camp. I didn’t have any empty cereal boxes or other boxes lying around, so when I watched the hangout, I used their idea of the coffee cans. Mine is an italian waiter – he actually is very fun for holding candles in the palms of his “hands.” This project was superfun!

We had a blast hanging out with Lumi’s’ Jesse Genet. She posted this for a little added inspiration to get you making.
