Intro to Arduino for Artists Series - 3 part

The first class is introductory and moves the participants through to an intermediate level by the third class, allowing for deeper, more extensive learning & teaching time, with an emphasis on finishing a working prototype.

In this three-part series, participants will be introduced to creative coding, circuit construction, sensors and actuators. Whether you are interested in robotics, sound, light art, or just plain old tinkering, these workshops are a great place to develop your artistic ideas and build working prototypes.

Day 1

During the first day of the workshop, you will learn the basics of working with the Arduino microcontroller board and the Arduino IDE software environment.  You will learn how to hook up basic sensors and actuators to the Arduino and will learn to write code to control them.  You will also have an opportunity to talk about your ideas and learn how to put them into action using Arduino.  

Day 2

During the second day of the workshop, you will build on your skills by playing with a variety of interesting and increasingly complex sensors.  You will work with motion sensors, proximity sensors, colour sensors, temperature sensors, accelerometers, and more.  You will learn how to read and manipulate this data using fancier code that you will write yourself! 

Day 3

During the third day, you will work more extensively on building your working prototype and get help & troubleshooting from the Instructor.

About the Instructor: Gerald Grison is a new media artist whose practice incorporates sound, kinetics and optics. Finding inspiration from discarded electronics, his work focuses on the issues of technology and obsolescence. He graduated from the OCADU's Integrated Media program and has since taught introductory classes and workshops in electronics and physical computing at OCADU and at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto.
