DISCOVER THE WORLD OF ART BY DOING

At ESTEAM Learning Labs, creative kids thrive! With top-notch instruction in the visual & performing arts and more, students develop skills, try new activities, and most importantly, make lifelong friendships.
 
Students connect with other kids with similar interests as part of our small, learning environment.
 
Students love participating in activities such as Comic Book Creation, Filmmaking, Movie production, Creative Writing, Musical Theater, and Board Game creation, while also connecting with new and old friends through fun activities!
 
ESTEAM Learning Labs makes for a wonderful first camp experience that attracts kids back year after year when they know “This is where I fit in.”

COMIC BOOK CREATION & CARD GAME DESIGN

 Join our talented team of Graphic Artists, Card Game Enthusiast, & Comic Book Gurus to create your very own Heroes of Legend! This class will explore the history and lore of traditional comic books and card games.

The students will create and develop a Comic Book or Card Game Hero and tell their unique story. Each student will learn how to write, draw and illustrate their stories to share with the world.

LEGO® MOVIE MAKING / STOP MOTION

Kids work in pairs to create a short story, draw it out, and build it with LEGO® Bricks, and then they bring it to life on film.

Each session students will choose from THEMED LEGO® KITS from MINECRAFT to SUPERHEROS (and more) and using those kits, create their very own movie, complete with sound effects & even music.

A copy of all projects will be provided via a screening link from our YouTube page for screening purposes.

Ages 6-14

The Actor’s Summer Intensive

This 1 Week Intensive Camp focuses on the fundamentals of what we do as actors – play make-believe! Through exercises, improv, and scene/monologue work the student will learn to focus their imaginations to create a “second reality”.

The emphasis will be on suspending the critical mind, paying attention in the moment and willingness to be authentically affected by others.

Students will be able to perform a monologue or scene at the completion of the course.

Ages 6-12

MAKEUP, SFX & COSTUME DESIGN

From Fairies, Beast, to Zombies, these Camps have it all! In these 1 week THEMED hands-on classes, Students will create or re-create their favorite Character from that session’s theme.

They will design a costume and makeup, and then use pieces from their own wardrobe, combined with our Costume Closet and Beauty Box to bring their vision to life.

Our instructors will lead them through the alteration and design process. Once their creation is complete, Students will have a photo shoot dressed as their character.

BOARD GAME CREATORS

We combine Entrepreneurship, Art, Game Play, Technology & FUN and our campers LOVE IT! This camp will challenge and inspire your child to see the world in different ways, primarily 3 dimensional! Throughout the week, students will play many different types of board games then work in teams to design a Board Game, complete with rules of engagement and then pitch that board game to a panel of Local Board Game Geeks in hopes that their game will be chosen and receive seed money to continue with the dream of creating their own Board Game!

Ages 8-14

U-TUBERS UNITE

Students will spend this 1 Week Camp Series filming run-and-gun style, capturing the events, activities, and people around them. Once the footage has been captured, students will work together to edit and deliver the footage in an exciting show format that excites and captivates their audience.

Any up and coming Youtuber will love this crash course in content creation! Final projects will be available for screening via the 4Reelz School of Film YouTube Channel.

FAQ

We believe in letting children learn and explore at their own pace. Our students work in teams and our instructors tailor teaching for each team. This allows us to spend more time explaining fundamental concepts to some students while introducing advanced engineering and programming challenges to others. Our mission is to provide fundamental and advanced disciplines as it applies to today’s standards. We motivate our young creatives to set new paths for greater possibilities by building personal portfolios to take home at the end of the week. Join us this summer to see how their new path unfolds.
Although we use over 10,000 LEGO® bricks & elements and the amazing LEGO® Education products in our program, we are not affiliated with LEGO® or LEGO® Education.
We believe in small class sizes (maximum: 14 students per educational director and one helper). The children are teamed up in small groups so that only 2-4 students share a kit. The class size is usually limited to 24 students with 2 camp directors and 2 – 4 counselors, the minimum size is 8.
ESTEAM Learning Labs and ESTEAM Academy are a Texas LLC, based in the Austin metro area. We’re insured and our instructors are trained with extensive background checks.
We are in the greater Austin, Waco, Temple and San Marcos Area.  We service the following cities:  Round Rock, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Leander, Liberty Hill, Lakeway, Dripping Springs, Pflugerville, Spicewood and many more.
