Zen Digital Spring Break 2018 Camp - Illustration, Art, Design & Printing

This year we are pleased to introduce a new, spring break camp for 9 to 12 year olds that will be held at Zen Digital, a print shop and digital agency, located just next to Zen Maker Lab.

Zen Maker Lab has focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) but we're big believers in STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, Engineering and Math) so this camp provides a great introduction to some cool "Art" tools and techniques.

Taught by professional illustrators and artists, this program introduces kids to sketching, drawing, cartooning, jewelry making, printing, laminating, vinyl cutting and more. It's great a great complement to our Zen Maker Camps.

Topics will include colour theory, usability and design, sign making, and using the powerful open source illustration software, Inkscape, photo editing tools Gimp and Pixlr.

Each participant will get to make a large format poster and print out to bring home.

Participants will also get introduced to laser cutting and some 3D printing next door at Zen Maker Lab.

Zen 247 Community Innovation Hub

Because the camp is being held at ZEN 247, an innovation centre that includes a maker lab, digital printing and media centre, and hardware startup tech incubator, participants will have access to technology, equipment and a unique "real life" tech environment. They can get a feel of what it's like working in a tech space.

Whether it is building a full colour model in our industrial powder 3D printer or printing 3D designs in our 3D printer farm, or laser cutting parts for projects, or printing posters on large format printers, we get a lot of comments like "best camp ever" and "this is the coolest place there is!".

Industry Instructors

Our camps are taught by industry leaders that are active in their fields and that are passionate about introducing kids and youth to cutting edge technology. You can see our instructors page for more details.

We also have a high instructor to student ratio with at least one instructor and one helper for every eight kids. Kids and youth will have fun while learning some valuable skills in a fun and safe environment.
