What do magic, cake decorating, live music, and dance all have in common? Art. Paintings, pastries, poetry, and computer programming are just some of the art exhibits that will embellish the rooms of the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy during Santa Barbara’s first Maker Faire. The Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy (DPEA) invites the public to attend this expo of creativity. Not only will DPEA class projects—including mobiles, light sculptures, necklaces, and painted pyramids—be on display, but also products that showcase the students’ hobbies, crafts, skills, and more. The DPEA Maker Faire will be held at the Elings Engineering Center on the campus of Dos Pueblos High School.

Modeled after Maker Faires held in New York and San Francisco, the DPEA Maker Faire, co-sponsored by the DPEA Foundation and the Santa Barbara Art Association Student Art Fund, is the first of its kind in Santa Barbara. The event highlights how art does not have to follow constraints—it can be anything. Maker Faires can include displays of any type of creativity ranging from films to card tricks to fabric paintings.

The Maker Faire also demonstrates how a student in engineering can also be a baker or ceramicist or musical prodigy. Art is anything and everything, Hemsley notes, and the Maker Faire will be evidence of that.
