I'm Ashley Newton. I love rainbows, robots, and LEDs.
Artist, Maker, Teacher, Consultant, Researcher
I make interactive art and immersive spaces/experiences, and coach people through creative problem-solving and prototyping.
I want to change the world through making magical, transformative, fun & interactive experiences for others that remind people to question their conception of what is possible.
I am passionate about teaching people (youth and adults) how to bring their own creative visions into the world through the use of technology and creative problem solving. I seek to help people learn to take apart their physical world in order to build something new.
A major avenue for my art and creativity education is currently Sustainable Magic, but I also teach independently and take on independent projects.
My background is in Cognitive Science (Smith College) and market analysis/research (business, multiple companies).
I am based in San Francisco, but enjoy traveling.
