About This Activity

Design and your very own video game and learn the art of the pixel! In this camp for creative kids, we will use Stencyl, a game creation engine to make 2-D video games on the computer. Each day, students will receive a short lesson, followed by guided creative building time. Lessons focus on designing fun and challenging platformer levels. This is not a programming-focused camp, but students will have the opportunity to customize their games using block-based programming similar to Scratch. In the afternoon, campers will learn 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. We 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 game and a gallery of original artwork to share with friends and family! PREREQUISITES: **Students must have basic computer skills: be able to save and load files, switch between programs and type on the computer.**
