Pixel Lab - Creative Computing (Mini-Makers Club)

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:

  • Exploring
  • Remixing
  • Creating
  • Sharing

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
  • Electronics
  • 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.

    Sorry Seb was the other guilty one. He was so excited about his 3D he even forgot his bag as well - his dad had to go retrieve it the next day. If I could find the link to the bank account details again I'd pay that way but if cash on Thurs is as easy I can do that.

    Hi, two people may have forgotten to pay last week. But I could be wrong. Can you please check. I need to be a bit more diligent with my check-list ticking. Thanks.

    Felix was a bit frustrated he could not connect to acidplanet but says he had quite a good time anyway. He really liked Incredibox.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
