The Art Car & Art Bike Workshops are a series of educational outreach for individuals interested in building art cars or art bikes. Experienced art car artists teach the introductory skills of art construction and design found in many art cars: welding, foam sculpting, and LED lighting. These workshops introduce participants to new skills but also encourage and provide the tools for the creation of new creative communities and a network within which students may find like minded individuals for future projects. Open to participants of all skill and experience levels.

The students are then split into pairs to each welder and monitored by the instructor and assistants for a guided work session demonstrating various essential clamping and welding techniques in the process.
