Make Art and Storytelling Come Alive with Scratch

Update: Due to the recent restrictions by Massachusetts Governor Baker’s office because of the increased spread of COVID-19, and to ensure everyone’s safety, this workshop will be given in an online format via Zoom. Registered students will be emailed a link to the virtual workshop.

This workshop is currently sold out.  Please add your name to the waitlist and we will notify you if a spot becomes available.

Do you enjoy the arts? Do you enjoy writing or storyboarding?  Are you interested in creating art?  If so, this two-day workshop is for you!  Get creative by writing a short story and then animate it using Scratch.  You will start by learning to create your own art with basic vector software.  Then, you will animate it yourself in Scratch and build into your own digital story.  Please pack a peanut free snack, lunch, and drink daily.
