Creative Coding

Creating expressive art and design works through web programming

Learning to code can be challenging. It can also be incredibly rewarding. But what if it could be fun too? Creative coding is about utilizing code as a design medium. Rather than focusing on functional output, the goal is to build something expressive in the form of entertainment, interactive art, sound art, and more. There are two key learning outcomes associated with this course:

  • Using the web as our platform, students will create interactive experiences in the web browser.
  • In the process, students will learn the basics of programming with JavaScript, one of the most popular and versatile languages today.
