Screen printing

People have been making their mark on the walls of caves, clothing and paper for thousands of years! Come make your own mark and learn the art of screen-printing! This class will be a simple introduction to the process of printing using silkscreens and is geared for ages 8 to 15. Bring something to print on such as an old blank t-shirt or canvas bag. We will provide screen materials, inks and recycled paper for printing. This is a messy-fun kinda thing, so wear comfortable old clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, or an old shirt or apron

video game controller

Have you ever wanted to make a video game? Did you miss our previous Science and Art of Video Games presentation? Well worry not! Back by popular demand, our Student Helper Nicholas Grogg is leading a revamped program for creating another video game! This program is in four parts, with a basic overview of creating a video game, a workshop creating art for an all new video game, getting to play this new game featuring your art, and seeing the previous game with new features if you were here before.
