Inside Blizzard: Take Your Child to Work Day—Virtual Edition

This past Thursday was Take Your Child to Work Day, and prior to COVID-19, we were planning a big day of fun and enriching on-campus activities for Blizzard’s parents and their kids. After the company shifted to work-from-home mode, we had to get creative.

Thanks to the help of talented folks across the company, we were able to put together a cool virtual program aimed at giving Blizzard’s kids an entertaining and educational glimpse into what goes into our games. We’re thrilled to share some highlights with you!

Art Tutorials with Samwise Didier

Join veteran Blizzard artist Samwise Didier for some sketching tutorials centered on iconic Warcraft races.

And for some extra credit, download this PDF guide to drawing your favorite characters from across the Blizzard multiverse!

Story Time with Chris Metzen

Blizzard alumnus Chris Metzen reads from his children’s book Snow Fight: A Warcraft Tale. A treat for kids (and adults!) regardless of age.

From artists and game designers, to engineers, HR professionals, and more, folks from all across Blizzard shared lessons, lectures, and tutorials designed to provide kids with insights and skills that’ll equip them for a bright future. We hope you enjoyed this glimpse into some of our extracurricular Take Your Child to Work Day activities, and as always, stay happy, healthy, and safe!
