Nakamura expands on the importance of Post-Its as an untraditional but perfect canvas. When the gallery walls are covered in the small pieces, they turn into a patchwork quilt of creativity. When a buyer brings a piece home, it’s the chance to own a high quality piece at an entry-level price. It’s also an important way for children to see that anyone can be an artist. It allows all to be inspired and shows the next generation that art is within reach.
Nakamura says, “I think Post-its are great since they’re ubiquitous items that people doodle on and at the same time provides a great medium that confines but at the same time challenges. Have you seen what people are doing on a 3×3″ piece of paper? It’s nuts.”

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
