The arts continue to be a popular field of study for many students across the world, and a new round of summer courses that have become available in the Keystone State may help younger students get an edge on the competition.

Officials with the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit in northern Pennsylvania will be offering up courses on a number of artistic careers including video game design, movie-making and web development, according to the Reporter Online.

Level One is a video game design course that will teach budding game developers the fundamentals of computer animation, character design, story development and game design. The course, which is being taught by the Gamers' Design Academy, will task students with creating their own game by the end of the two-week class.

Budding filmmakers will enjoy the Script to Screen course, which will cover topics ranging from pre-production to the editing phase, and everything in between. Students will work in groups of four to produce several short films for the class.

High-school students who are interested in web design will want to give the Design Your Own Website class a try, where they will receive skilled instruction in HTML coding, tables, WYSIWYG, and incorporating CG graphics into video in an attempt to build a unique and personalized website for each student.
