    Animation is a fun and interactive art form that utilizes creative and technical skills. Valley Christian is proud to offer a summer program that makes use of current technologies, and celebrates individual students’ God-given artistic talents. Today animation can be found in games, TV, movies, commercial advertising and more. The skills taught, tools learned and fun will go beyond the classroom, as the students’ eyes are opened to how the industry works and what goes into an animated production. During the 2-week camp students will learn how to use Maya, an animation program used by the pros. By creating 3-D computer models they will be challenged to create characters, tell short stories and much more. If your child is interested in New Media Arts, this camp will encourage and inspire them as they go deeper into the fun filled world of Animation.

    Study Skills for the Digital World

    Technology has changed not only how we get our information but how students learn, making many of the study skills of the past outdated or impractical. This course will focus on study skills for learning in an environment where much of the material is digital. Students will learn how to use digital devices efficiently as tools for research, multimedia creation, writing, reading, and annotating, all while managing the distractions that result from social media and a constant internet connection. In addition, students will learn how to apply the latest brain-based research to help them work smarter rather than harder, getting the most out of their study time. Attendees will leave with both tips and tools for overcoming common academic challenges, such as procrastination, time management, and anxiety and stress.

    Highlands Ability Battery Feedback Sessions

    The Highlands Ability Battery is a series of 19 exercises that measure and define a person's natural abilities. This Battery can help promote self-understanding, build self-confidence, guide educational choices, optimize career options, and help students train themselves to talk to admissions officers and employment prospects. When students sign up, an access code will be mailed to them and they can take the test at home on their computer.

    Study Skills for the Digital World

    Technology has changed not only how we get our information but how students learn, making many of the study skills of the past outdated or impractical. This course will focus on study skills for learning in an environment where much of the material is digital. Students will learn how to use digital devices efficiently as tools for research, multimedia creation, writing, reading, and annotating, all while managing the distractions that result from social media and a constant internet connection. In addition, students will learn how to apply the latest brain-based research to help them work smarter rather than harder, getting the most out of their study time. Attendees will leave with both tips and tools for overcoming common academic challenges, such as procrastination, time management, and anxiety and stress.

    Highlands Ability Battery Feedback Sessions

    The Highlands Ability Battery is a series of 19 exercises that measure and define a person's natural abilities. This Battery can help promote self-understanding, build self-confidence, guide educational choices, optimize career options, and help students train themselves to talk to admissions officers and employment prospects. When students sign up, an access code will be mailed to them and they can take the test at home on their computer. Once the Battery is completed, the student will attend a Feedback Session at VCHS where they will receive a 33-page report describing their results. At the session, they will learn how to interpret the results.

    Sign Up: Contact Sonia Avilucea at savilucea@vcs.net to sign up.

    Animation Camp 2.0

    Animation is a fun and interactive art form that utilizes creative and technical skills. Valley Christian is proud to offer a summer program that makes use of current technologies, and celebrates individual students’ God-given artistic talents. Today animation can be found in games, TV, movies, commercial advertising and more. The skills taught, tools learned and fun will go beyond the classroom, as the students’ eyes are opened to how the industry works and what goes into an animated production. During the 2-week camp students will learn how to use Maya, an animation program used by the pros. By creating 3-D computer models they will be challenged to create characters, tell short stories and much more. If your child is interested in New Media Arts, this camp will encourage and inspire them as they go deeper into the fun filled world of Animation.
