Pixel Art & Animation Ages 7-10 & 10-12

Campers are divided into two groups by age and skill level: 7-10 years and 10-12 years. No previous coding or digital drawing experience necessary!

Develop unique characters, monsters and heroes. Bring them to life with animation!

Creating pixel art and animations challenges kids to think creatively when crafting or coding their own stories and games.

They will learn how to compose objects and characters, basic shading and composition. We will cover basic animation skills as well.

Campers will tackle new digital terminology such as pixels, frames and dimensions. By week’s end they will have a number of projects to share with friends and family!
