    You should look in to these:

    There is a free arduino library for these already and it works great. Super simple. I have used the 8x8 grid from Adafruit and it's a treat. BE VERY CAREFUL SOLDERING YOUR LEADS. The LEDs are very static sensitive. If you blow the serial input on the first LED, the whole strip will look dead. You'll have to bypass the first LED and try your luck on the second if that happens.
