MINECRAFT (Ages 8-11)
Typically, kids play Minecraft at home with little to no direction or goals in mind. Now, approach gameplay from a new angle to learn how to think critically about your work with the infinite possibilities of the game. Create themes, storylines, dialog between characters, objectives, goals, and more. Most anything imaginable can be performed in Minecraft. It is the epitome of creativity– limitless opportunity to build, discover, and problem-solve. In recent years, the game has gained traction as an educational tool, acknowledged by many as an important vehicle for engaging kids in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields such as programming, video game design & development, level design, and more. There will be supervised breaks with outdoor activities planned.

Students will learn about four different Master Artists in history. We will explore what their style is like. Then we will paint a painting in the style of that Master Artist. The materials we will use will be acrylic paints on canvas. Each student will complete at least four paintings in the style of four different artists. This class will both help students recognize differences between styles of artists and help them to create their own style.
