Camp Pixel Project is a 4 day summer camp in The Woodlands. Kids aged eight and older will learn both photography + graphic design . Each summer camp is divided into graphic design and photography classes, so kids get instruction in both arts. NEW! TWO WEEK CAMPS—This summer we are offering campers the opportunity to attend camp two weeks in a row. The photography sessions will be split into two aspects—the Creative/Composition Aspect, and the Technical Aspect. Campers can take one or two weeks, depending on what they are interested in learning. Each session of graphic design, campers will design creative projects such as notepads using Photoshop as well as hands-on creative projects like creating their own marbled paper. Campers that attend the two-week session will be encouraged to use more advanced tools in the software program while creating slightly elevated print projects, learning more about fonts, and color study.
"I believe kids (and adults!) should learn the technical aspects and “rules” of photography first. By teaching kids the technical aspects first, they can develop a strong base, which will lead to them becoming truly creative and then learning to “break the rules!” Through hands on activities like photo scavenger hunts and memory games, children will complete the camp excited and motivated to start a lifelong journey in the art of photography." —Tracy Robinson, Camp Pixel Project co-founder
"When working with kids, it is fun to really show them how graphic design is in every aspect of their lives and they don’t even realize it. The cereal box they grabbed for breakfast, the toothpaste tube, the tags on new clothes, the designs on the t-shirt they are wearing–all graphic design. At camp, I will explain what a graphic designer can do as a profession while teaching campers to use Adobe Photoshop as they become a graphic designer."—Jennifer Pickard, Camp Pixel Project co-founder
"Last summer, my sister did Camp Pixel and when she came home she told me everything she did. I was so jealous it seemed so so fun! So this summer, I decided to do Camp Pixel.
CPP is AMAZING, but a successful student comes from an even better teacher, Mrs.Tracy and Mrs. Jennifer are the most awesome and understandable teachers ever!"
