Lego Robotics

C3Lab is offering two day Lego Robotics courses to students between the ages of 10-14. The two day course will take place on Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon. Your child will work in a team setting to build and program a small robot to perform various tasks. The course is designed to help young people develop essential team building skills as well as promote their interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) related activities. It is no secret that our lives are exponentially becoming more dependent upon STEM technologies. Familiarizing your children with these technologies at an early age is the best way to peak interest and foster curiosity in the expanding areas of research which govern the world around us.

TWO DAY COURSE

  • Saturday - 9am to 2:30pm (includes lunch)

  • Sunday - 12 to 2:30pm

  • Ages 10-14

  • Class Size
    Max 10 | Class will be divided into two groups of five.
    Minimum 4

About the Instructor: Samantha Westfall has been teaching Lego Robotics at various elementary and middle schools in the greater Charlotte area for just over three years. Many of these schools participate in county Lego sponsored competitions where they are judged on both programming proficiency and teamwork. Of those she has instructed, several have advanced to the state level Lego competition held at NC A&T University where they placed among the top in the state.

Cost: $100 per child

Intersection, C3 Annual Art Exhibit

Diverging styles, methods and individuals intersect in space to frame this annual exhibit from the artists at C3.

Personal styles, careers, and life don't always function together in harmony, but when you intersect the common thread of the love of art throughout a creative space, with the true spirit of collaboration – an interesting collage emerges to tell a meaningful story.

They are all artists. Different faces in different stages. But all within the same space to passionately connect with what feeds their soul and drives their imagination to create artistic value to the community and beyond. 

Come meet all the artists in their studios during the South End Gallery Crawl. DiSean and Frank from Behind the Bar will be serving specialty cocktails.

Cover Artists: Irisol Gonzalez and Val Chan

Something monumental is clearly happening right outside their door, but what exactly - an industrial accident, a terrorist attack, nuclear war?

As the television exerts an ever more sinister grip, their paranoia escalates into bloody carnage.

Iconography: works by Micah Sherrill 

Join Gallery C3 for a new exhibit featuring iconic works by Asheville artist Micah Sherrill on Friday, November 2nd from 7 to 10pm.

When I finished high school, my uncle sent me a Diane Arbus books with an inscription: "Remember that the only thing worth photographing, or painting, or even looking at...is the human face." That statement has been an echo in my mind as I have made my work. The face has been central to what I find interesting and continue to explore. There is always much to experiment with, and the face is a wealthy foundation to improvise from. - Micah Sherrill

Highlight Gallery C3 as one of the must see locations for the November South End Gallery Crawl! Alcohol proceeds benefit Charlotte Community Toolbank.
C3 Artist studios will be open during the November Gallery Crawl so drop by to explore more local art and chat with the artists!
