Creature Creation is a 5-day summer camp for kids that focuses on the exciting world of creature design and fabrication. Campers will learn how to design and create their own fantastical creatures using a variety of materials, techniques, and tools, including sculpture, puppetry, or even 2D methods. Through hands-on projects and guided instruction, campers will learn about the process of designing creatures, from concept to final construction. They will also learn about different types of creatures and the different roles they play in stories and movies. At the end of the camp, campers will have a portfolio of their own creature designs and a completed creature that they can take home with them.
