Video Game and Animation

pc buildingVideo Game Design:

In this class students learn the basics and fundamentals of game making while creating a fun platform style game. Students learn to make sprite and how to convert them into objects to program them. They program their characters to move around, jump and crush bad guys. One the foundation of their game has been established, they expand on it by making power ups and multiple levels of increasing difficulty. Once the class is over, students games will be upload to our website where they will be able to access and play their games.

Stop Motion/Pixilation

Stop Motion / Pixilation is a fantastic way to bring imagination and animation to life right before your eyes. The possibilities are endless as you animate real world objects such as a water bottle or turn a ball of clay into a living character. Using state-of-the-art technology, students will use elements of filmmaking, story development, voice recording, sound effects, and music, resulting in a professional quality animated short.

Language

We invite your child to explore the world outside Fair Haven! Introduce your 18-36 month or  3 – 7 year old to a second language (French or Spanish) and culture other than his or her own through songs, interactive role playing, games, and beginner conversation. Each week a theme is chosen (for example, colors, vegetables, fruits) and vocabulary introduced. A craft and a story in the target language reinforce the chosen theme. Subsequent weeks build on what was taught previously. Your child will become enthusiastic about learning a new language in a fun and educational environment. At the conclusion of each session, your child will impress you with a recording of what he or she learned in class!
