Description


Girls Learning Code. Artmaking with Scratch. Beginner workshop for ages 9-12.



Art is everywhere - even on our computers!


Girls Learning Code is excited to combine the power of play with basic design and programming skills for this hands-on workshop. This experience offers learners the opportunity to learn basic programming principles in a super fun, beginner-friendly environment! Through merging creativity with basic coding concepts, learners will use code to create digital artwork on their computer.


Using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment, learners will have the tools to develop interactive art and art-building platforms to share and use. Learners will also be introduced to Scratch's amazing online community, sloganed: "Imagine, Program, Share," where they will have the opportunity to upload their projects to share with fellow digital artists!


Each Artmaking with Scratch workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new artwork every time!
