Our Classes

D&D Dungeon Master Academy

Learn to be a Dungeon Master and forge your own adventure! Students will build magical worlds, draw amazing maps, and craft fantastic stories. We will use craft materials to bring our campaigns to life, and practice leading a band of imaginary heroes. Then, working in groups, we will create characters and take turns leading games for each other. At the end of the course, kids will take home custom adventure kits to share with friends and family!

Stop-Motion Animation

Bring your story to life by making stop motion animated movies! Working in teams, we will build sets and characters using LEGO® bricks, clay, and other materials, then write, direct, and edit unique stories. We will learn about narrative structure, setting the tone, and using special effects to communicate stories to an audience. This program takes a strong social-emotional learning lens and focuses on skills like empathy, giving and receiving feedback, and goal-setting. By the end of the session, kids will complete multiple animation exercises and a final film project to share with the world!

Video Game Design

Design and build your very own video game!
Students will use Stencyl, a kid-friendly game creation engine to make 2-D video games on the computer. Each day, kids will receive a short lesson, followed by guided creative building time. Lessons focus on designing fun and challenging platformer levels. The primary focus of this class is not coding, but students will have the opportunity to customize their games using block-based programming similar to Scratch. At the end of the course, students will have a game they can play and share with friends and family!

*** Students must have basic computer skills: be able to save and load files, switch between programs and type on the computer. ***

Pixel Art & Animation

Learn the art of the pixel! Join us for an in-depth class about drawing with the smallest squares on any screen – pixels. We will make retro-style video game art, animated characters, and other art projects. Students will learn fine-art concepts such as color theory, light & shadow, perspective, tiling, animation principles and more. They will also learn the history of pixel art and how it is used in modern games and videos. At the end of the class, students will have a completed gallery of original artwork to share with friends and family!

Dungeons & Dragons

Calling all adventurers! Join a party of brave heroes in the imaginary world of D&D and make friends in the real world along the way. Dungeons and Dragons is an inclusive role-playing game that focuses not on competition, but on storytelling, imagination, creativity, teamwork, and a bit of luck. In this adventure, we will create our own fantasy characters, explore maps, roll dice, and embark on a magical quest with the help of the Dungeon Master. All stories and quests are unique creations developed by our team of D&D adventurers!
