The Innovation Center at Abington Art Center is a 2- and 3-D digital fabrication lab for creative minds and innovators. As a partnership between AAC and Penn State Abington, collaboration is a fundamental element of this new space. We believe that by bringing together people of all ages, experience levels and backgrounds, and giving them access to tools and technology to help explore their creativity, we can all be empowered to create better communities.
By blurring the boundaries of analog and digital, art and science, traditional and experimental, new ideas have room to grow and develop. Inside our Makerspace, you’ll find a 3D printer, laser cutter, and vinyl cutter side-by-side with sewing machines, hot glue guns, and yarn. Come find your inspiration and bring your ideas to life!
We offer classes, workshops, and open studio time. Interested in using the tools in our Makerspace? Here’s how:
