What-nots from a mother who'd like to think she's cool when she most probably is not.

Empowered by the Powermac Animation Camp
My little ball of pure energy wanted to try something new this summer. Boldly coming out of his ultra physical swim camp and football camp comfort zones, Kenji has asked me to get him into Powermac's Animation Summer Workshop. Did a feel a bit daunted? Of course, I did. Animation would mean he'd be on his seat for 2 hours a day. And Kenji does not do on-his-seat-for-2-hours-a-day too well.
Well, leave it up to Powermac to prove me wrong!
Powermac's 3-day Workshops covered Programming, Digital Design, Music, and even Junior IT Training. Tools the new generation can definitely use and enjoy. The Animation Workshop gave kids complete hands-on creation with 3 of their top animation programs: Toon Boom, Pencil, and Flash. Each session meant your kid comes home with a freshly made animation which he made all by himself. Insta-Fulfilment For-The-Win!
The set-up was pretty serious, office-like, which made me worry at first.
But with their own top-of-the-line laptops…
User-friendly yet fantabulous programs…
And über helpful teachers…
The whole three days were just as fun as they were enriching.
Check out a couple of first-time animator's stuff from my boy. :)
Graduation Day came with a snazzy certificate.
And this even snazzier wooden flash drive filled with the collection of your kids' works.
Make sure to keep up to speed with Powermac's remaining summer workshops and other future kiddie activities. I mean, we will.
