Why learn about Artmaking?

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 girls the opportunity to learn basic programming principles in a super fun, beginner-friendly environment! Through merging creativity with basic coding concepts, girls will use code to create digital artwork on their computer. Each Artmaking with Scratch workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new artwork every time!

Using Scratch, a beginner level programming environment, girls will have the tools to develop interactive art and art-building platforms to share and use. Girls 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!
