Dungeons & Dragons After School Adventures is part illustration workshop, part creative writing class and part mystical journey through our own imaginations! This class combines the classic role-playing game developed in the 1970s with modern technology and creative learning opportunities. Develop a character, build a back story and then start a quest with your fellow adventurers. As we play through our quest, participants will draw some of our amazing feats, write of our heroism and combine both into a tome to take home. Participants will also have an opportunity to design and 3D print  an avatar of their character!
