Multimedia Design

Multimedia Design

Join us as we explore the two major visual design programs: Basic HTML coding and graphics manipulation! Using free web programs and GIMP graphics software (similar to Photoshop), you can build your own website and manipulate photos from the web and from your own digital camera. You can learn HTML basics and CSS coding and then progress to more advanced web page coding that explores interactive ways to add photos and media to your posted web pages. Also, you will have the opportunity to create a short film using green screen technology and iMovie editing tools. You are encouraged to bring a digital camera with its accessories or a storage device (such as a flash drive) with your own saved photos, as well as a pair of headphones.

This camp focuses on:

  • Learning and using basic HTML and CSS coding and graphics manipulation
  • Manipulating photos using GIMP graphics software
  • Making your own web page and designing it to your liking
  • Learning skills to maintain and manage these web pages post-camp
  • Creating and editing a short film using green screen technology

Fred Johnson is returning to Kids College for his 5th summer and is super excited to be back!  He'll be the instructor for Multimedia Design, Lego Robotics, and Lego Stop Motion Animation.  When not having fun at camp or hanging out with the geese at PSU's beautiful lake, he is a school counselor around the corner at Abington Junior High School.  For fun, he loves spending time at the playground with his children, playing sports, and watching Penn State Football.  This summer, he hopes his campers will help him decide whether or not to buy a Saquon Barkley jersey!
