Looking for a fun, hands-on opportunity to play, make, and design games? Join us for our 2nd Youth Game Camp starting on December 30th and 31st, finishing up on January 2nd through 4th! The camp will run 2:30pm to 4pm each day. Please note that the library will be closed on New Year’s Day.
Please register here. Walk-ins are welcome.
Have you ever wanted to create your own adventure story or a game you can play with friends?
Bringing games to life can be easy and fun! Join Pixel Arts for 4 days of fun, hands-on workshops to create tabletop and videogames with your friends. We’ll draw, sketch, and design games inspired by your favorite books and your imagination.
You’ll be able to:
• Build your own game worlds using cards, paper, tiles, dice, and tokens on December 30th and 31st.
• Write and illustrate a choose-your-own-adventure game with Twine – a game software – on January 2nd.
• Bring your game to life with SNAP – an easy to learn visual programming software – on January 3rd.
• Combine your projects or continue on with one of them in a free-for-all maker place on January 4th.
At the end of the activities, share your games with friends online and at the library!
Participants are encouraged to attend all five sessions.
