The Details

This is a beginner level workshop for kids 8-13 years old and their parent/guardian/aunt/older sibling.   

Bring a special kid in your life to this workshop and learn to create a website together from scratch! Note: this workshop is BYOL so each parent or guardian/youth pair is required to bring one laptop on the day of the workshop as well as their own nut-free snacks.

Art is everywhere – even on our computers!

Kids Learning Code is excited to combine the power of play with basic design and programming skills for this hands-on workshop. This experience offers kids the opportunity to learn basic programming principles in a super fun, beginner-friendly environment! Through merging creativity with basic coding concepts, kids 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, kids will have the tools to develop interactive art and art-building platforms to share and use. Kids 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!
