Digital Monkey School
There’s a world where monsters are storming a castle and one person is trapped within the walls. Nearby, in another world, a wizard dances on the shore of a beach. As distant as these worlds—and an infinite number of other worlds—might seem, they both came into being at Digital Monkey School. Founded by Greg Orduyan in 2006, Digital Monkey offers all-ages classes on creating 3-D, 2-D, and animated art on a computer. A veteran of the video-game industry for more than 15 years, Orduyan was a central figure in the design of such PS2 staples as Frequency_—a predecessor to _Guitar Hero_—and _Silent Hill 2. Elementary-aged children and older can sign up for the digital-painting course, where they learn to apply lessons from traditional painting when working with a stylus and tablet, and an introduction to video-game development, which covers basic programming and financial planning in gold-coin-based economies.
“Both my son and his friend really liked the class. Not sure if there is any where else on the peninsula that is doing what Digital Monkey is doing. Thanks.”
“Great folks! I brought FOUR grand kids (7, 9, 12 and 15) and they all had fun while learning!”
