The teachers at Teach Me To Make have been very busy lately and haven’t had time to hold Arduino classes. Here are some place to learn Arduino in the San Francisco Bay Area:

Arduino Microcontrollers: Building Smart Art
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. Designed for people with little or no programming or electronic background, Arduino is perfect for artists, designers, hobbyists or anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Sensing the environment through input from a variety of sensors, Arduino can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors and other actuators using its free programming language and development environment.
Starting with basic electronics and programming, we thoroughly review Arduino’s hardware and software features. Plenty of hands-on lab time deepens your understanding and enables you to create interactions of your own. Personal projects are encouraged and welcomed. A laptop is helpful but not essential. An Arduino board and accessories are provided.

Other local hackspaces might also have classes; visit their websites or join the mailing lists and ask them.
