Lights, Camera, ASL!

 

Videos are how we get most of our information in today’s media age. Join the ranks of successful video producers and learn how to create a film from start to end. In this three-hour workshop, students learn about video creation and editing through an immersion-style approach. Participants learn how to use software like iMovie and FinalCutPro X from start to end. Activities include creating storyboards, filming, and then editing to create a film.
Note: Students must provide own laptops with iMovie installed. 

Drawing & Painting

 

Early art experiences are essential for self-expression, especially among young students. In this three-hour workshop, the ASL Virtual Wand is used to spark participants’ imagination, creativity, and appreciation in art.

Participants are introduced to basic drawing skills to create a picture of any subject they choose. They first sketch the subject on a blank canvas and then learn how to turn it into a masterpiece through easy-to-learn design elements and principles. Mediums used include pencil, ink, watercolors, and acrylics.

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics


STEAM has quickly become a favorite among young students, especially for its excellence in combining logic with creativity.
Benefits of STEAM include:
• Building problem-solving skills
• Testing different approaches to building a structure
• Learning math and science while having fun
• Engaging in real-world engineering work
• Exploring engineering or math/science-related career options
Students learn about STEAM principles while designing and building their own rockets, catapults, parachutes, and other fun devices. This three-hour workshop is ideal for upper elementary students who love to apply analytical thinking and solving real-world problems that are integrated with art, imagination, creativity, and fun.
