HANDS ON SERIES - LIGHT PAINTING - WITH LUC THIBODEAU

7:00-9:30 PM 

** Limited space **

Join Luc Thibodeau in a fun evening of Light Painting.  Luc will keep you entertained using the pixel stick.

 The pixelstick is the result of the inevitable evolution of light painting, and the advancement of technology. The neat thing about the pixelstick is that you can program it to create any light pattern you want, in fact, you can even use it to create light painted pictures.

Pixelstick consists of 200 full color RGB LEDs inside a lightweight aluminum housing. The mounted controller reads images you've downloaded or created from an SD card and displays them, one line at a time, on the LEDs. Images can be downloaded or created yourself.
