The Baton Rouge Cajun Clickers Computer Club (CCCC) is hosting recurring Blender workshops developed and taught by Thomas Eldredge (teldredge). These workshops
are aimed at introducing the basic functions and capabilities of Blender and bringing students up to an intermediate user level. These classes are taught at the CCCC headquarters in Baton Rouge in a very well equipped computer lab. 'Open labs' are also provided to allow students to work on individual or group projects with help from more advanced users. At present these workshops use Blender 2.49b and focus on basic modeling, materials/textures, lighting, and animation. In the future we will begin offering more advanced classes including scripting and using the BGE.
The classes are free for club members and anyone may register to attend one class for free before signing up with the club (membership is $45/year and includes access to all classes/workshops offered by the club).
