Have you ever considered being a book illustrator? This course will look at works by a variety of illustrators from popular children’s picture books. You will examine each of these illustrators and look at how they created their art, as well as how the art enhanced the books. Then, you will have the opportunity to create your own images in the style of each of these illustrators. To do this, you will choose from a variety of poems and literary passages and create some fun, lively and colorful illustrations influenced by the works of such great artists as Eric Carle, Chris Van Allsburg, Mo Willems, Patricia Polacco and many others.

Create Your Own Adventure Game

Date/Time: 7/9/2018 (10:30 am - 12:30 pm)

Create Your Own Adventure Game
10:30am to 12:30pm | July 9-26
For Students Entering Grades 7-10

Video games are the ultimate form of entertainment because they combine aspects of every other art form. But pretty graphics, realistic acting, and engaging music don’t make a game great — an interactive story does! These days, the only thing that separates games from movies is that they are interactive and the player has choices. We don’t have the time, budget, or resources to make the next Call of Duty this summer, but with a little bit of creativity, you can make something even better. Make your very own text-based adventure game like the ones that were popular when the computer was first invented, which are starting to make a comeback on tablets and smartphones. These games were based on the choose-your-own-adventure books from the late 1980s, in which the reader chose what the narrator should do next by flipping to a certain page. But a paper book can only give you so many options, and what you create in this class is only limited by your imagination. Students who sign up for this class will not only learn how to write an interesting story but also how to bring it to life on a computer with interactive choices.

Shanty Boat Picnic

Date/Time: 7/1/2018 (11:00 am - 02:00 pm)

On Sunday, July 1st, from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm, the World Awareness Children’s Museum will host artist Wes Modes and his rustic recreated mid-century shanty boat at the Yacht Basin, 159 Broadway, in Fort Edward. The shanty boat installation is part of a compelling art and history project, “A Secret History of American River People.”

Families are invited to bring a picnic to the park and enjoy music, children’s activities and games. Children and adults will enjoy a visit to the shanty boat, and will be invited to hear and tell stories of how the canals and the Hudson River have impacted their lives, and the lives of past generations. Modes seeks out people whose stories are not typically part of the historical record, stating “I try to find our elders who grew up here and remember a different time and a different river.”

The project has exhibited nationwide in conjunction with expeditions on the Mississippi, Tennessee and Sacramento Rivers. Now in the fifth year of the project, the artist has already traveled more than 1,250 river miles on the shanty boat and talked with thousands of people about the river before beginning his next journey on the Hudson River.
