Suntek Elementary Readers Theater video

Here is the 2016 video for Reader's Theater:

Computer Art Club - An Android app made by elementary school students.

The Computer Art Club proudly presents our new Android app:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=computerart.club.renpy.one

You play a student in the Computer Art Club during a ten week course as a series of bizarre events begins to unfold. During each class you decide what you will do, your choices will affect your skills and perhaps even the future of the world!

Each student coded and created the images for one week, as far as I know, they were the first elementary school students to code an app with Renpy and possibly even the first elementary school students to make an android app.

Teaching OpenToonz in Schools.


OpenToonz is a great way for the students to learn to create high quality work that they can share with their friends and family and have a sense of pride and accomplishment that will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

We are very excited to teach our students to use the same software used by animation companies like Studio Ghibli. We may even be the first school in the world to teach OpenToonz.

 Over the next few weeks we will make a short film together. It will be a race against time as the semester is almost over, but I really look forward to seeing the end results! Hopefully we will be able to post some  of the videos on Youtube when we are done!

Make a Simple Animation in Open Toonz


Today we are going to make a simple animation using Open Toonz, the same animation software previously used by Studio Ghibli.

Create more poses for your Line stickers

In the last tutorial we learned Inkscape basics and made our first line stickers. This time we are going to continue to make our own sticker set. Choose a pose and try to recreate it using your character. Select a picture from below or from the line sticker store.

Inkscape Basics: Line Stickers

Cony Line StickerToday we are going to learn to make stickers for line using Inkscape. We use Inkscape because with Inkscape we can make pictures that will look good even if we make them extremely big or extremely small. With Inkscape we can make beautiful clean lines even when using a mouse or laptop. This makes it perfect for making line stickers.

Lets remake the Cony sticker and learn to use Inkscape

1. First save the picture of Cony to the left and put it into Inkscape.

2. Click on the circle tool (or press F5) to make the circle for her head.
