Summer Camp - Online: Digital Art & Animation
DESCRIPTION: Campers in our Digital Art and Animation Summer Program will learn how comics, cartoons, and anime become more than just art forms we see all around us every day. Students will learn how cartoons come into being and then create their own mini animation using pixel art with the program Piksel. Whether your child has never picked up a paint brush or is an anime master, these budding digital artists will create projects using the tools that they can use for school and future endeavors.
-Full refund, up until 3 weeks prior to start date.
-No credits nor refunds for absences due to illness or otherwise.
-Easy change of weekly camps if your schedule changes, with advance notice and based on availability.
TECH SET UP:
PLEASE COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING PRIOR TO THE START OF CAMP! The use of caps, bold, italics is because not taking these steps in advance will reduce the cool things we can accomplish, and lessen the experience for everyone. We see the frustration on young, and adult faces as everyone waits while families that didn’t follow these steps catch up. If you have questions, please call us prior to class at 424-280-4654. Thank you in advance for improving this experience for everyone.
