    Whether you’re an educator, sales person, board member, artist, photographer or advocate, making presentations with slide deck software (Keynote, PowerPoint or Google Slides) has become part of your everyday toolkit. While this class will use Apple’s Keynote (ships standard and free on every Mac/iPad) as the demonstration vehicle, the concepts can be easily incorporated into Microsoft’s PowerPoint or Google Slides.

    Unfortunately, most presentations lack the impact to make sales, effectively communicate knowledge or change opinions. This workshop will give you the tools that take your presentations to the next level. Through a combination of examples, easy to learn techniques, specific software related tips, your slide decks and the associate narrative will be transformed from amateurish to professional, effective presentations.

    Topics:

    • Developing a talk’s purpose and take-aways
    • Complementing your narrative with slides (not duplicating)
    • "Show, don’t tell"
    • Basic considerations - wide vs narrow, dark vs. light, font sizes, graphics
    • How to simplify your slides
    • Effective use of animation
    • Integrating images / graphics from the internet (and making them look polished)
    • Slideware as a graphics editors
    • Tips and Tricks

      Writers tend to focus on character description, but does eye color really matter? Hair color and texture? Body type? Learn when appearance matters and when it doesn’t, and what qualities are much more important. We’ll also briefly touch on our own psyches and how we project ourselves onto our characters. That’s not a bad thing!

      Join Martha Kay Salinas in a fun, question-and-answer Zoom session (I ask the questions, you write down the answers) that will lead you into developing more rounded characters. It’s not exactly a brainstorming session. It’s more of a brain tickling exercise.

      Sample questions:

      What is the worst thing that’s ever happened to your character?
      What strength in your protagonist needs to be tested?
      What vulnerability needs to be exposed?

      Format: I’ll say a few words to frame the exercise and then we’ll get started. There might be time for a short discussion at the end.

      Materials: Come with a character in mind. Link into Zoom from your computer, and take notes in any format you desire. You will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting the day prior to the class.

      Learn the basic features of VCarve Pro, a popular program used to make signs, engravings, intricate inlays and imported 3D shapes and models on computer-controlled routers. VCarve Pro is easier to learn than Fusion 360, the other 3D design program taught at BARN, and can be used for projects on both the large CNC router in the Woodworking Studio and the small CNC router in the ETA Lab.

      This class focuses on how to use the program to design a project. You will learn how to create a CNC job, design vectors using basic shapes and basic text, edit and transform vectors, import 3D clipart and models, create tool definitions, create and manage toolpaths, and save g-code for machining on a CNC router. You will not run the router, but this class does qualify you to take a later class where you will design a project in VCarve Pro and then cut it on one of the routers.This first class will also qualify you for future studio-specific classes using CNC routers.

      Please note:  To take this class, you must have use of a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of VCarve Pro 10 already downloaded to that computer. Download a free trial at www.vectric.com. The software requires a PC or a MAC that has Windows installed. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please email WoodClasses@bainbridgebarn.org to contact the instructor for help.

      Learn and practice Earthy ways for engaging your writing process and feeding the content of your written work. Come to understand how the natural world and ecology can be used as tools, antidotes (especially for writer’s block), and inspiration for your writing and your life.

       Specifically, students will be:

      • given foundational information about the nature/creativity connection
      • guided through a sampling of free-writes and practices
      • guided through general ways to incorporate nature into their writing projects and creative process, coming to understand the role and benefit of such
      • given an opportunity to receive feedback about how to implement these practices specifically in relation to their own projects or creative impasses

       This class is appropriate for all authors and aspiring writers; the practices can be effective regardless of genre. Be sure to bring to class a few pens, a stack of paper (preferably unlined), as well as an open-heart and open mind. Together, the students and instructor will create a nurturing and nourishing creative environment so that everyone can flourish.

      Join old and new friends on Zoom for some coding this summer and create some computer games together!  

      In this three-session online class you'll get coaching from the instructor and also have a chance to learn from your peers. 

      We’ll be using a program called Scratch. This class is open to those unfamiliar with coding in Scratch, or those who are familiar with Scratch but want to join in the fun of crafting some games with others.

      These are the games we'll be creating:

      Clone Wars - Save the Earth from space monsters! You will learn how to make sprites move using keyboard input, how to clone sprites to make copies of them, and how to use ‘broadcast’ and ‘receive blocks’ to send messages.

      CATS – In this game, you will guide cats to safety and keep them from falling into holes. You will learn how to use a forever loop to constantly generate moving cats, and how to use a repeat until loop to ensure cats follow a line.

      Dodgeball - In this game, you have to dodge balls to get to the next level! You will learn how to use the keyboard to control a sprite, how to use the if, then, else Scratch block, and how to clone a sprite.

      Here is what you will need to have for the class:  

      1.) A dependable internet connection.    

      2.) A computer or tablet able to run Scratch in one of the following browsers:   

      Desktop Compatible Browsers 
      • Chrome 
      • Microsoft Edge 
      • Firefox 
      • Safari
      • Internet Explorer is NOT supported.
      Tablet
      • Mobile Chrome
