Is that device helping your child to play nice?

Art is a great way to tap into kids’ feelings and technology is giving us new ways to approach art. Artist Georgie Pinn challenges the idea that technology isolates children. With her digital animation projects, she teaches kids skills and sharing through body motion tracking, facial recognition software and good old-fashioned collaborative creation. Whether you’re an artist, parent, educator, arts professional or anyone working with children in the arts, join Georgie in this ArtPlay Artist Learning Session presentation. Please note this presentation is only for adults.
