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)

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.

BPL Teen Tech Program
Code X Art, in partnership with Burlington Public Library, will be offering a series of beginner and intermediate technology classes for older teens (ages 14-18), focusing on the intersection between code and art. The classes cover three areas; 1) web development and design, 2) fabrication and hardware, 3) and generative or interactive art. Each area consists of two beginner level classes and an intermediate level capstone class. The beginner classes require no experience beyond being comfortable with installing programs, surfing the web and editing text. Classes run between February-May, 2017. All classes are free and materials are supplied.
Code X Art would like to thank Burlington Public Library for making these classes possible.
