It is already DECEMBER which means Christmas celebration🎄, family gatherings 👨‍👩‍👧‍👧 and WINTER here in France!

Yes, it has been nearly 5 months since I returned back from South Africa and so much has happened !

We prepared lots of content and surprises 🎁 for the whole month of December so I hope that you are ready to follow STEAM & Curious posts!!!

My Advent Calendar

Today, we are kicking off our December challenge #STEAMCuriousCalendar2020.

Everyday we will publish a new mini-challenge to help you build and strengthen your digital skills throughout the December.

By the way, do you have an Advent Calendar?

If not, check out our studio to see what STEAM & Curious classmates came up with. Here is mine what do you think?

Let's get started with Day 1 challenge !

#STEAMCuriousCalendar2020 Day 1 - Create a pixel Christmas Tree .GIF

Whether you want it or not, it is really fun to decorate a Christmas Tree 🎄

However, pine trees are not always available in your neighborhood.

So we found the perfect easy way for you to CREATE and DECORATE your very own!!

We love PIXEL Art and created this .GIF animated file in less than 5 min !

Let's try it out...


  • Open a pixel art free tool in a browser. We are using PIXILART here.

  • Select Start Drawing --> New Drawing

  • I would recommend using a size 32x32 canvas

  • On the left side, pixilart has basic features that you need to start : Pencil , Bucket, Erase, Color gradient and Select Tools.

  • At the bottom, you'll find options to create a .GIF : Add Frame, Copy Frame, Preview ...

  • By clicking Copy Frame, you will copy the frame you are working on and create a new one with slight changes.

  • Once you are happy with the result, you can download the .GIF or each frame using the Download menu on the top left corner.

Let the fun begin !

Don't forget to share the link to your project, code or even a snapshot of your pixel art Christmas Tree on social media with the hashtag #STEAMCuriousCalendar2020 and tag me with @steam.and.curious so we can all view your amazing work!
