Power Mac Center (PMC) launches Design Trail for Kids summer art camp in cooperation with PMC Business Systems, Inc. (PBSI), PMC’s official training arm. The summer camp offers six special courses covering comics creation, 2D animation, game design, and building filters and 3D effects. This will be conducted online for kids ages 7 to 15 years old.

“Children have an active imagination, and it’s important to provide them creative outlets while also prioritizing their safety and well-being amid the pandemic. This summer, Power Mac Center goes all out in creating opportunities for kids to explore ideas and enhance their digital creative and coding skills. Should they decide to pursue graphic design, visual communication, or even coding in the future, parents are assured they have a good foundation,” said Maleng Raysag, Training Head, PMC Business Systems Inc.

Available courses:

  • The Art of Comics (7 to 10 years old) – Kids can create their own comics with doodles, basic lines, shapes, and colors. This course will teach kids how to maximize their iPad for art.
