CAMP SCHEDULE

Camp is split into two tracks-Creative and Technical. Both sessions are taught in one day giving a camper the opportunity to attend both for one full day of camp. OR campers can mix-and-match by attending each track in separate weeks. Below is the list of all of the camp options.

Disclaimer: Each session will have slightly different projects and topics covered. Once a camper is registered and paid in full, we will send a complete course description to the email on file. Please note: The course description/projects is an approximate list. If we find that the campers are not grasping the content as quickly as scheduled, we will slow down the pace. We would rather the camper really grasp the basics before moving on but this may mean we can’t cover all the topics listed.


MORE ABOUT THE TECHNICAL SESSIONS

All technical session includes photography + graphic design each day of camp.

TECHNICAL—The "Technical" photography summer camp track focuses on the technical aspects of photography, such as introduction to light, aperture, shutter speed and ISO. Campers learn the technical aspects of aperture, shutter speed and ISO by playing with crystal balls, bubbles and water balloons. Campers learn to "paint with light"... and they even create "ghosts" in camera! Campers need a DSLR camera for this track- but don't worry, Camp Pixel Project has some for rent if your camper does not have their own!

*Projects are subject to change before each session. Registered campers will be notified of these changes.

TECHNICAL—The "Technical" graphic design summer camp track focuses on the technical aspects of graphic design. We will merge art + technology by learning how to create an animated GIF in Photoshop. Later in the week, we will create a magazine cover that incorporates graphics, fonts, and photos that showcases all of the campers Adobe Photoshop skills. Campers will need a laptop and a free trial of Adobe Photoshop for this track- but don't worry, Camp Pixel Project has some for rent if your camper does not have their own!

*Projects are subject to change before each session. Registered campers will be notified of these changes.


“I would tell a friend to come to this camp next year it was the best camp I had ever done in my entire life!! I will be looking forward to Camp Pixel Project every year!”

MORE ABOUT THE CREATIVE SESSIONS

All creative session includes photography + graphic design each day of camp.

CREATIVE- The "Creative" photography summer camp track focuses more on creative aspects of photography, such as "rule of thirds," "negative space," and "fill the frame." Campers learn the difference between what makes a photograph and snapshot and what makes a photograph a work of art. Conceptual (aka- "trick" photography) is also explored, and campers will learn how to make their fellow campers and objects levitate in camera! Campers need a digital camera for this track- even a smart phone will do!

*Projects are subject to change before each session. Registered campers will be notified of these changes.

CREATIVE- The "Creative" graphic design summer camp track focuses more on creative aspects of design showing the “fun” tools in Adobe Photoshop by manipulating photographs. This session focuses on merging photography + design into one project. Since Tracy and I are professionals in these areas, we thought it would be fun to show the campers how photographers and graphic designers work together on projects everyday. Campers will need a laptop and a free trial of Adobe Photoshop for this track- but don't worry, Camp Pixel Project has some for rent if your camper does not have their own!

*Projects are subject to change before each session. Registered campers will be notified of these changes.
