Zoom (online)


In this class students will use their animation skills to create a runner-style video game. With direction from an experienced video game animator, learn about sprite sheets, rigid bodies, physics engines, UI elements and more to create your own personally customized and animated video game in Unity, to be hosted on to play after the course is completed!

Animation basics is highly recommended, but no previous coding experience is required.

*Note: this is an online course. A webcam is required as well as a computer that will support Zoom. We will provide the Unity installation instructions ahead of the course.*

Optional tablet rentals are available through Quickdraw - email Erin at
