August 17 -21
This year we are pleased to introduce a new, spring break camp for 8 to 12-year-olds that will be held at Zen Digital, a print shop, and digital agency, located just next to Zen Maker Lab.
Zen Maker Lab has focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) but we’re big believers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, Engineering, and Math) so this camp provides a great introduction to some cool “Art” tools and techniques.
Taught by professional illustrators and artists, this program introduces kids to sketching, drawing, cartooning, jewelry making, printing, laminating, vinyl cutting, and more. It’s great a great complement to our Zen Maker Camps.
Topics will include colour theory, usability and design, sign making, and using the powerful open-source illustration software, Inkscape, photo editing tools Gimp and Pixlr.
Each participant will get to make a large format poster and print out to bring home.
Participants will also get introduced to laser cutting and some 3D printing next door at Zen Maker Lab.
