Graphic Art is integral in creating movies, video games, cartoons, comic books and more! At this camp, students will get to examine their favorite movies, cartoons, and video games to learn about logos, branding, marketing, and visual storytelling. By the end of the camp each student will have created an original character design and brand concept for that character.

In this art class, you will use your natural creative talent to explore different types of art: from drawing to painting and sculpting! You will practice important design techniques through games and group activities, get out into nature to gain inspiration and finish off the week with your very own project. Learn how to use your creative abilities to open doors to a world of imagination.
Goggles and grime, let’s solve a crime! Have you ever wondered why fireworks display many colors when they ignite? Do you ask yourself why you have to sort the different kinds of plastics in recycling centers? Through hands-on learning, student teams will conduct experimental activities to understand the causes, effects, and variables involved in some of these questions, among others. These students will not only be having fun each day, but training to “fight crime.” The fifth and final day, the students will solve a “Whodunit” scenario by incorporating the information and techniques they used during the week to put the Pilot Prankster in his or her place.
