Pop-Up Studio | Build an 8-Bit Character

Free with reserved ticket
Sun, Mar 6 | 10:30am–12:30pm PT
In-Person: Learning Center

In celebration of a new year of fresh starts, our workshops will highlight creative ways to spend the time.

For several decades, video games have immersed adults and children into unknown worlds, building global connections through gameplay and creating lasting bonds of friendship. Log on (in-person) with us in this workshop as we explore the history of 8-bit video game character designs, then design and create a unique 8-bit inspired character using grid drawing, color sketches, and simple adaptation techniques.
