Meet our Summer Staff 2018!

Hi everyone, my name is Daniel Coady and this will be my fifth summer working at Artech Camps. I love to create and edit movies, draw animations and make video games through the use of various computer programs. I have been working with programs such as Flash and Windows Movie Maker since I was 9 years old, and more recently have been building games in Gamemaker and RPG Maker. I also enjoy playing flag football and watching movies.

I can’t wait to help campers with all sorts of creative projects!

I am very excited to be working at Artech Camps again this summer! I have been working as a freelance animator, and for Artech for the past few years. I love to draw, animate, and create art in general, and love to facilitate spaces where kids can be creative.

Looking forward to another great summer of exciting new ideas and approaches!

I’m an animation and cinematography enthusiast working for Artech camps. I’ve spent many years learning the use of various animation and movie-making software.I moved to Halifax from Ottawa-Orléans in September and have been substitute teaching at primary and secondary schools for the NS francophone school board. I pride myself in my ability to work together with other educators, communicate with parents, and to ensure an environment that is stable, engaging and rewarding for youths.

I can’t wait to teach this year’s summer camp goers about the wonders of animation and cinematography.

My name is Jacob and this is my first summer teaching at Artech. Playing video games is my passion, and I love making them almost as much. I have been programming for nearly 5 years now, 3 of which I have been using Unity, and I have loved every moment of it! I enjoy biking, swimming, 3D modelling and teaching others.

I’m super excited for the summer and can’t wait to see all the amazing games. It’s going to be awesome!
