A six-week workshop with Std.6 students from the Mallya Aditi International School, Artbots allowed the children to examine basics of generative art. The workshop began by analysing the act of drawing, and then discussed how it could be translated to drawing-critters.
The children constructed their critters out of Lego and augmented them with Pico blocks to add interactive behaviours. These behaviours influenced the drawings made by their critter. The workshop closed with a short exhibit displaying the critters accompanied by the drawings they produced.
