The above image was taken on Thursday 21st November during a Welshot Chester Academy Evening. The theme this month was “light painting”.
The Welshot logo was actually “painted” with a LED / Raspberry PI open source system that I made using instructions from Adafruits site below: learn.adafruit.com/light-painting-with-raspberry-pi/

Thanks for the heads up, Mark! If you’re interested in trying this out for yourself, check out the tutorial below from the Adafruit Learning System.

Light Painting with Raspberry Pi – Light painting is an artistic photographic technique combining long exposure times with lights in motion. Traditionally these images have been hand-painted with a penlight…but more recently, affordable microcontrollers and addressable RGB LEDs have brought a new high-tech twist to the idea. (read more)
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
