In this two week class students are challenged to invent their own card game in the first week, and then invent a board game the second week. Students will learn fundamental game design and then make up characters, draw animals, monsters, and items and figure out mathematical systems (luck vs skill) that make the games fun to play. The class teaches students important design elements, function, communication, text, rule book writing, drawing, composition, color theory, character development, world building, mathematics, probability, and repetition. The final day we pull out all the cards together and spend the final day playing the games invented.

 

SUMMER MUSICAL: “Recess!”  with Director Mark Reeves • $60

Performance Dates: August 14 at 2:00 pm and 7:00pm
Performance Location: Arts Center Stage

This session is a collaboration with Two Rivers Performing Arts School (TRPAS) and open to students in grades 3 – 7. Okay, class, pop quiz time. What do you get when you mix a young substitute teacher with a classroom full of the seemingly dumbest (and funniest) pupils found anywhere? A wise-creaking musical that’s sure to put a smile on the principal’s face, that’s what. When Miss Quackenbush takes over a class at the Little Red Schoolhouse, she soon discovers why the previous teacher had a nervous breakdown. Bad poetry, mice in the lunch boxes, and a student with the measles is enough to drive anyone crazy. Unless the likable but hare-brained pupils can pass a simple exam, they won’t advance to the next grade. It’s one inane answer after another as Miss Quackenbush tries to promote this bunch of block heads outta here. It won’t be easy, though. Only a fool would want to leave this school.
