Intro to Interactive Art
Are you interested in exploring how to use new technology to expand your artistic practice? Have an idea you want to bring to life but it involves projections or motors, or other technology you’re just not that familiar with? Come to this class to learn about how to talk about this new frontier of art, the software and hardware options available, and learn about the tutorials and classes that can help you get started. In the first hour, three artists working in this field will briefly share projects they’ve worked on, how they made them, and how they chose and learned to use the technology they needed. In the second hour, we will help you install the software you’re most interested in, and get started working with it. All attendees should bring a laptop.

Intro to Audio Synthesis
Wednesday, May 29, 7-9 pm, $15
Come learn the fundamentals of sound generation with Free Libre Open Source Software! This two hour course will cover a brief history of early electronic music, some physics about sound, subtractive synthesis, and will end with the class designing some sounds of our own. Learn the basics of electronic music with free, open source software that you can take home. Bring a laptop!
Intro to Arduino
Tuesdays, June 4, 11, 18, 6:30-8:30 pm | $40 per session, or $90 for all 3
In this class you can expect a fun crash course on everything you will need to get busy creating with the popular open-source computing platform called the Arduino. We’ll cover all the key concepts, from learning the fundamental aspects of programming with the Arduino language, to the different types of materials you can use in your projects and prototypes. Our aim for this course is to send you home with a cool project to show your friends, a whole bunch of new ideas and the knowledge and resources to produce some Arduino magic!
We are currently filling our calendar for 2013. If you have a class or event you would like to see (or help organize), please contact us!
We are a loosely organized group of volunteers, so we want to plan stuff that you’re interested in. Below is a list of classes we have held in the past with success, if you are interested in attending any of them, please leave a comment. Once we reach a critical mass we will make the class happen.
- Intro to Arduino
- Intro to Audio
- Intro to Sensors
- Intro to Soldering
- Intro to Circuits
- Recycled Electronic Jewelry
- Intro to Kinetic Sculpture
- Duct Tape Costuming
- LED Moonlit Flower
- Sex Toy Hacking Workshop
- Design Day
- Basic Web Development
Other class ideas we have never tried:
- LED Pop-up book making
- Clothes Hacking
- Nerf Gun Hacking
Do you have an idea for a class?
Is there something you want to learn that isn’t listed here? Do you want to teach something that would fit on this list? Leave a comment and we will try to make that happen too!
