Class Experience

Love the look of 2D pixel art?

Like playing old-school video games?

Want to design and create your own 2D characters and worlds?

Join us for a workshop in which we’ll design 2D characters and worlds that you can use in video games or anywhere else!

You’ll learn to use a free online platform to create pixel art characters. You’ll be able to set your characters in a world you design.

We’ll also explore ways to animate your character so they can move. And, we’ll discuss ways to use your characters and worlds in games that you design as well or export them as gifs you can share with friends!

Participants will need to work on a Mac or PC desktop or laptop.

Unfortunately, Chromebooks & tablets won’t work.

This was the best virtual camp my child has attended! My son continued to work on his project even when the class ended each day! Moda exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend them for virtual and in person camps!


I would recommend when having to download a specific app or program, to give clear instructions on which one to choose.

My 8-year-old daughter loved it, and wants to sign up for more like it this summer! I am grateful for the virtual option, too.


For “pirates or Vikings” she really wanted to do Vikings.
