So you like computers? Well aside from playing games which we all really love to do and lets face it games are cooooool...computers can also be used for other things like creating stuff too!
We thought you might like to come along to our new 'Pixel Lab' - a weekly after-school club for girls and boys interested in the creative use of computers.
The Wellington Makerspace will supply the Laptops and a space to chill out and learn together. This could be as simple as a single web posting/blog entry or as complex as a Custom T-shirt design, game or music video, Also work you create can be posted on http://thepixellab.tumblr.com/ to show off to the World [in a safe way] - and on your own created website*.
Club nights are built around four important elements:
For starters here's some cool stuff we might want to get our teeth into:
- Video Art
- Game Making
- Interactive Art
- 3D design
- Graphic Design
- Web Design
- Clothing Design
- Electronic Music
...And the best bit is we have an inspiring an all round nice guy who wants to help us do this cool stuff, His name is Alan Proctor-Thomson.
Alan is an artist and a Digital Media teacher in schools for 10 Years here in Wellington and also in the UK. He currently teaches as a Digital Media Facilitator at Brooklyn School and at Te Aro School.
