Program Description

PixilArt is a cloud-based software which registered teens will use to learn about making sprites and GIFS for game design, programming, and other projects. Pixel art, a form of digital art, was originally used in early video games, and uses pixels -- defined as dots and squares that form an image when put together on a computer screen. Hex colors, pixel sizing, and other concepts related to digital art will be discussed. 

This software was introduced in a previous BPL program, where the basics of drawing in PixilArt were introduced. Students who are new to the software will receive a link to the previous program's materials so they can review before class begins. Registrants will also need to create an account at
