WORKSHOP TAKES PLACE AT TWO RIVERS GALLERY (725 Canada Games Way, Prince George). How does art and coding relate? This STEAM activity will teach you how to use tablets, laptops or computers to create animated pieces based on the work of Wassily Kandinsky and Joan Miro, two influential abstract artists. We will explore a creative approach to computational thinking that can be applied to future coding activities, learn about the history of coding in art practices, and discover further ways you can explore this field of art and technology. It is recommended that you bring your own tablet or laptop, we will have a few on hand as backup.
This is a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) Workshop, based on the Applied Design, Skills, and Technology Curriculum.
Grades 3 and up
Please bring your own laptops or tablets that support 8 GB of ram or higher.
