Ceramics - The Art Studio at Tilton provides a welcoming and stimulating atmosphere for students to learn the fundamentals of pottery and ceramics. Start with learning how to create basic vessels and forms on a potter’s wheel. Then move on to learn more complicated techniques in working with clay while focusing on design, glaze, and finishing techniques. Follow a passion for instruction in tiles and mosaics as an option to make your perfect designs.
Photography - In our hands-on photo lab, we will demystify each of the systems that make up your camera, e.g: shutter, aperture, ISO, metering and white balance. We will explore how each of those works, why they are needed, how they do what they do and why you should care. Then we discover how to use each of them artistically to improve your photography. Our lab is laid back, fun, hands-on, and led by people who LOVE to photograph.

So, whatever your skill level, here’s a chance to take a leap with us and start feeding that budding artist inside of you.
Coding and Programming with Game Design - This is a chance to explore how games are made, from game mechanics to core loops to design docs. We start by breaking down the role of the game designer into its key parts and learn about systems and begin by creating some simple game design ideas. Then, you’ll explore how to use what we've learned about game design and game systems to craft compelling game design concepts. We’ll build out some new games and try them out on the other students.
Media Teams of the Future - Work on spreading the WORD. Today we are bombarded with information from so many different directions, how are we to know which to read and which to ignore? Effectively collecting information, putting it into a format that is easy to send, post, or save, then getting people to read and react is a skill of the future. Work with us within different media centers to understand where your message fits best and how to get out the word!!
