Game artwork is an important part of any gaming experience. Do you want to learn how to create game graphics? Or perhaps students want to see what a career in game design is like? Maybe you have a student that just wants to learn Photoshop? In any case, students can take a quick course in Digital Game Art in Photoshop.
The Digital Game Art in Photoshop course will show students how to create high quality beginning game graphics that will help start a digital portfolio. The techniques taught in this course can be translated into just about any asset creation for games. The course is your track to building amazing attractive game assets!
Whether for your own games or for other projects, this project-based, hands on course will take students from having little experience in Photoshop to creating professional game design assets. Students will build and enhance their project from week to week.
In this introduction to programming, students will learn basic programming skills using the C# programming language while building their own project similar to the popular game Crossy Road. While building the game students will build game scenes that help them learn about variables, if - then logic, switch statements, loops, arrays, and methods. All this will be done while interacting and learning with 3D and 2D game objects in the Unity engine.
They will also learn the basics of Level Design in Unity including but not limited to the following: Unity Interface, simple animation, physics, and creating materials, and user interfaces. Everything students do, they will be able to take home with them and use in Unity.
Participants will also have the opportunity to explore VR/AR programs using VR headsets, 3D printing, Minecraft, and flight simulation. A complete STEM experience!
