Students make use of traditional and digital media such as sketch booking, story boarding, Twine, Game Maker Studio, HTML5, Java script, sound effect editors, and digital drawing to create one-of-a-kind video games.
漫画设计（Comics/Graph Novels Camp）
主要课程介绍：Students take their illustrations to the next level by creating their own unique comics and graphic novels. Emphasis is placed on storytelling, introducing students to character development, plot structure, scripting, and storyboarding. Skills in penciling, inking, coloring, space, and perspective are introduced through the use of a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional media, such as colored pencils, oil pastels, watercolors, digitally edited drawings, and handmade zines. Artist presentations, trips to the Art Institute of Chicago, and visits to downtown Chicago's vast array of public art provide inspiration and drawing practice as an entry into the basics of comic narrative and stylization.

主要课程介绍：This camp introduces young designers to fashion with an emphasis on discovering their own style while learning the technical skills that allow them to take their designs from concept to reality. Activities guide students through the process of developing original ideas, finding inspiration for fashion in the world around them, and responding to the work of other artists and designers. Students build fundamental skills in fashion research and drawing, draping, garment construction, and machine and hand sewing. Students also explore sculptural draping by using paper to create exciting experimental garments on the dress form. As their designs develop, additional technical skills are introduced, including fabric printing, fabric dyeing, and embroidery. Visits to the Art Institute of Chicago, SAIC's Fashion Resource Center, and the Flaxman Library provide inspiration and supplement the studio experience. Working with hand-dyed fabric and deconstructed thrift store garments, each camp ends in an exciting runway show for parents and friends. Lessons/projects change each camp so students may enroll in multiple camps over the summer.
