KOKO Open Source is about seeing and doing. Ideas over technique. Organized by Open Source Gallery, we combine Open Source’s mission to support socially engaged art and environmental sustainability with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, ART, and math) programming.  KOKO offers a variety of creative workshops that use open source technology and found materials. We believe the only bad ideas are the ones that go unexplored.

KOKO’s innovative, learner-centered art workshops enable participants with a range of abilities and learning styles to shape their own experiences through a peer-to-peer learning strategy.  Each KOKO workshop uses a small, open environment to give each child special attention so that they may flourish and develop their own sense of individuality.  We nurture and fuel children’s creativity and curiosity, encouraging visual thinking as a means of self-expression.  Our goal is to create a greater understanding of art and technology and help your child develop problem-solving skills that will benefit them in school and for the rest of their lives.
