The Arts and Technology Institute equips youthful creatives with tools for diverse industries that many schools seldom touch on, including robotics, video-game design, and animation. The 2-D animation class parks 10 to 15 students in front of PCs outfitted with the latest animation software as qualified instructors help breathe life into original characters without getting spittle all over the screen. Two-hour sessions explore the step-by-step process of computer-assisted animation, from creating hand-drawn images to importing them into the animation program and coaxing them to move. For those interested in animating their careers, the 15 weeks of intensive artwork prime attendees to take an official certification course (available through a separate organization for $99). Registration for the course includes all vital materials, so students may show up to class in their skeletons.

Arts and Technology Institute

The Arts and Technology Institute readies kids for the digital age by equipping them with multimedia skills during hands-on, project-based classes that encourage creative thinking. During the encouraging lessons, a highly qualified instructor shows children ages 6–15 how to program games to play on an Xbox or computer, navigate 3-D modeling software, and design and build robots they can swap in for younger siblings. Whether they’re making a movie or creating digital art, students learn to problem solve, work as a team, and think outside the box. In addition to regularly scheduled course, ATI invites youth into afterschool and homeschool programs, and welcomes older pupils into a continuing-education program that can supplement art and technology learning at the high-school and college levels.
