In 2D Game Design, students will learn that game design is much more than a pastime — it is a challenging and fulfilling field that rewards passion, creativity, and hard work. In this course, your student will apply concepts from math, physics, art, and logic as they create games that pay homage to the highly successful arcade games of the 1980’s. Each student will have the opportunity to create a capstone project by choosing from the different game genres.

Mid-Winter Break will be February 21st-25th. Spring Break will be April 4th-8th. Classes will not occur during these breaks.
