It’s sometimes incredible to fathom just how many people are behind one movie: you need a group to write a script, draw up storyboards, direct, act, hold the camera, do makeup...the list goes on. Casting all these roles is a familiar task to Suezean Matarazzo, a veteran of the film industry who is also the school's founder. At Austin Film and Maker Camp, her instructors teach elementary through high-school-aged students how to collaborate on a short movie of their own or on constructing robots or animation.
In the camp's workshops, art and science are combined to teach students real-world applications of technology, engineering, and math as they work together to design, prototype, and build their own inventions. Workshops stay small, so the camp's roster of instructors and guest speakers—such as casting agents and stuntmen—can help individuals hone their critical thinking and problem-solving abilities.

The instructors at Asgard National Training Group come from military backgrounds including time spent in the British armed forces, the US Marine Corps, and the US Air Force.

While its mediums are many, the goal of Ceramics-N-More is singular: to tap into visitors' artistic potential. Here, you can paint pottery or get the hang of wheel-thrown forms during classes that utilize motorized pottery wheels. Even kids can get into the action by adorning ceramic pieces with handprints and footprints, or joining friends for an art-fueled party. The center also offers glass-fusing classes, which teach participants how to create colorful works of art from glass and the one magical power all humans take for granted: fire.
