Now Offering Sunday Classes!

introducing...
The Digital Arts Experience will now be offering classes on Sundays starting in January 2016.

 

At The Digital Arts Experience, our goal is to offer cutting edge STEM/STEAM/computer technology classes for the kids and teens of Westchester County, New York. After running another series of successful Saturday programs this Fall, we have decided to now open our doors on Sundays!

We find that weekends are for the most part more convenient for many families to enroll in our programs and visit our facility. With Saturday as one of our busiest days, it was a no-brainer to us to open our doors on Sundays.

Starting the weekend of January 16 & 17, we will start up new 8-week sessions in 3D Printing, Animation, Computer Programming, Design, Electronics and more! We are excited to run several new programs which include:

_3dsculpt3D Character Modeling & Sculpting

With Blender, a 3D modeling and texturing program, students will learn to create detailed 3D models and sculptures. Using a digital drawing tablet, students will learn how to sculpt an object from scratch into a highly detailed character. Each week students will work on different projects to hone their skills and by the end of the class will have portfolio ready projects completed.

SAT: 01/16 – 03/12, 10AM – 12PM, Ages 9-12

SUN: 01/17 – 03/13 11:15AM – 1:15PM, Ages 9-12

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWearable Technology

Wearable technology is becoming more and more popular everyday, especially when devices such as fit bits and apple watches exist. However, what if we were to incorporate technology into fashion? In this class, students will learn to invent and create a functional wearable garment, such as a shirt that lights up when reacting to sound, light, or temperature.

SAT: 01/16 – 03/12, 12:45PM – 2:45PM, Ages 9-12

SUN: 01/17 – 03/13 11:15AM – 1:15PM, Ages 9-12

 

_jewel3D Jewelry Design

From rings to earrings and necklaces and hair clips, there is practically no limitation to what you can create in this class. Using CAD software, students will design original pieces of custom fit jewelry. Students will also learn how to safely and proposal operate our 3D printers, and use them to print their creations!

SAT: 01/16 – 03/12, 10AM – 12PM, Ages 9-12

Our classes are small, 100% hands on and are project based so your child will develop social, technical and creative skills for the present and for the future.

The classes are held at a max of 6-8 students so that everyone gets the personal, individualized attention they deserve.

Everyone also gets their own computer to work on throughout the class, to enable them to work with the most up to date digital arts tools and technologies.

2015 Midsummer Highlights at The DAE

Midsummer Recap

Before we relive the highlights of the first part of the summer, there’s still plenty of time to end your summer at the Digital Arts Experience. Summer Session 4 runs from August 17th to the 28th, and we end our summer camps with Summer Session 5 from August 31st to September 4th. If you can’t make it for the summer, don’t worry because Fall Registration is currently live and the The DAExpress is taking bookings for Minecraft birthday parties.

Class in MakerspaceOur summer kicked off with a record high number of registrations for Summer Session 1 compared to previous years. We greatly enjoyed the packed facility and buzzing energy that brought along. On the last day of the first session, the DAE hosted a celebration for our 3 year anniversary!

DAE 3 Year PartyIn addition to enjoying good food and company, attendants heard the DAE announce two new ventures: DAELearning and DAE Makerclub. DAElearning will be an online subscription based site that provides members with interesting, educational videos on Programming Languages, 3D Printing, Mac Basics, and much more.Members of DAE Makerclub will have complete and unlimited access to our facility including labs, 3D printers, and more.

DAE Makerclub

Then Summer Session 2 came along and broke the record the previous session had just set. This high number was partially due the numerous kids who reenrolled in our classes. Our site was at max capacity with every single computer being used! Summer Session 3 started smoothly and is currently going on. Check out a student made short film below.

10626612_788355541215104_8699949702034388048_n

In the past few months, students have made countless creative projects in so many different areas such as 3D Printing, Scratch coding, video editing, and much more. The Open House took place from 7pm at our site which is located in Westchester county. Parents and kids observed our 3D printing setup, Scratch workshops and asked questions about our summer sessions.

We are so excited to present our lineup for our new Summer STEM Camps that are starting July 6th. We are offering 5 different sessions where students can choose from a morning or afternoon session, or a class in both for a full day. When you sign up for a program during our Open House, you will receive 10% off of enrollment. 

Check out our Summer STEM Camp schedule here!

We are looking forward to sharing the variety of student work with parents, students and the community!
