The mission of Code X Art is to combine art and technology to create positive social impact through education, community engagement, and public programs.

We believe that combining technology and arts-based learning sparks creativity, collaboration, emotional intelligence and innovation.

We focus on using free, open source tools that are available to everyone and can adapt to participant’s level of interest and experience.

We use digital tools to;

  • create art and design projects
  • test and scale high impact teaching methodologies
  • teach digital tools to support artists (in the making)

Code X Art is a project created and curated by Fiacre O’Duinn.

Upcoming Classes

JavaScript X Art

Saturday, May 27, 2017: 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Burlington Public Library – Holland Room
2331 New Street, Burlington, ON

Price: CAD80.00 /per person

Do you want to learn how to code but don’t know where to start? Do you have a passion for creative expression? Come learn how you can combine both with a little help from p5.js – a powerful JavaScript library developed to make coding accessible to everyone.

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of JavaScript, the fundamentals of p5.js and walk away with a piece of interactive art. Class sizes are kept small to ensure everyone gets individual attention if they need it.

You can see examples of what is possible with a library like p5.js here.

What to do BEFORE the workshop:

Install a code editor. We suggest Atom, which is free and available for Mac, Windows and Linux.

What to bring on the day:

• Your laptop, charger, and your curiosity!


• None! The class is designed for beginners, but it is fast-paced, so you do need to be comfortable with using keyboard shortcuts, installing programs, surfing the web and editing text.
