A workshop series focused on artists who want to learn how to incorporate electronics and/or computer programming into their practices. They are not formal classes, but open time to work on projects in adjacency to and in collaboration with otherartists who are figuring things out. And I am around the whole time to help you out, provide you with resources, and point you in the right direction. I have started to build an electronics lab and have all the basic tools (soldering iron, breadboards, etc) you will need along with a lot of components (arduino, raspberry pi, resistors, caps, lights, sensors, etc, etc) to play with.
I think they work best if you have a project and/or idea in mind and come to the workshop with questions. Then I can put together little demos, show you tutorials online and in books, and help you figure things out. No previous programming/electronics experience is required.
If you are interested in programming, I will give you a couple pre-workshop assignments to get started, then we'll go from there.
Space is limited, so if you would like to participate, please RSVP to nicklally AT gmail . com
Classes are on Wednesday nights in downtown Oakland (not 2141 Broadway; email for details).
