October 2nd, 3rd, 4th 2023

9:00 to 1:00

Call 256 895-8394 for more information.


This course is designed to teach Scratch using 21st century skills: coding, critical thinking, problem solving.  Students will learn to code with interactive lessons and projects.  Scratch uses code blocks where students learn to build simple games and use animated characters to tell stories.  Students will create interactive stories, games and animations.  They will use configurable blocks to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively as students create their projects.  Students will gain the ability to imagine, create, play, and reflect.

Digital Art and Animation Classes
Students will combine their creative skills with the power of computers by creating

characters and bringing them to life through animation.

Students study terms related to digital drawing.
Students study printing guidelines.
Students create a canvas on their computer screen.
Students learn how to animate using FireAlpaca.
Student learn to create frames and to animate the frames.


 3D Coding Class "Alice Coding for Kids"

Students will learn fundamental coding concepts in the context of creating animated videos and simple games in Alice 3-D objects.  In Alice interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program.  

Explore an innovative 3D programming environment (Alice) that makes it easy for students to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web.   Instructions for the interactive interface will correspond to standard statements  in programming languages such  as Java, C++ and C#.  Students will gain experience with all the programming constructs taught in an introductory programming course.  Alice allows students to see how their animation programs run, enabling them to understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behavior of objects in their animation.  learning rules for naming variables; using “intellisense” and handling multiple events.
