NewsPress Release -Technology Center and BMAC Offer Arts Tech Camps
BRATTLEBORO, VT - In collaboration with the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center, the Marlboro College Technology Center is excited to offer several different summer technology camps designed to challenge young minds and creative expression.
All taking place during the week of August 6 to 10, three different sections will be offered. For 10 to 12 year olds with little or no experience with HTML and graphics software, an introductory camp will be offered. Much like the various school break camps offered during the year, this camp will teach basic HTML and graphics software to create content for the Internet, and will focus more on process than on product.
For 10 to 12 year olds who have attended one or more of the school break tech camps, an advanced tech camp will focus on web design, exploring techniques that make computer graphics and web pages look better, as well as ways to make web sites work more easily.
Finally, for students entering the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades, a tech camp with the theme of "Passages" is being offered. Campers will work with images from digital cameras and scanners, and will use a variety of software to develop exciting graphics and animations. The final product will be a web site published on the World Wide Web that expresses the students reflections on the theme of passing from one condition or stage to another in work and life. "Passages" is the unifying theme of all the exhibits at the BMAC this year.
"The Brattleboro Museum & Art Center is pleased to be partnering with Marlboro College in offering this exciting educational opportunity for area youth," said Christine Holderness, director of BMAC. "I am thrilled that such an innovative and receptive college neighbors the Museum and I look forward to many more collaborations."
The faculty for each camp is drawn from the Marlboro College Persons School, including students, graduates, and faculty. For more information and to register for the camps, please go online at persons.marlboro.edu, or call (802) 451-7500.
