About Our Professional Development Courses

Our Intro to Creative Coding PD workshop provides teachers with training and curriculum to lead Code/Art's four introductory code-based art lessons in the classroom!

Each easy-to-teach lesson is geared toward expanding students' creativity and teaching them computing skills.

Our Code/Art lessons are the perfect way to merge technology and creativity in the classroom and are perfect for first-time coders. Introduce coding to students in a fun and engaging way!

Beyond the training, Code/Art provides teachers with university-level teaching assistants to help in the classroom as well as a teaching community to answer questions and provide on-going support.

What Teachers had to say about Code/Art

“I learned that coding is not as impossible as I thought it was!”  – Ana Weiss

“I was delighted that it was very step-by-step. I could actually do it with my students very easily.”  – Ana Vo

“The videos were very well done and provide someone like me, who is not a coding teacher, a great way to guide a classroom.” – Maria Sanin

“Creativity is the one thing that helps all of us learn. I believe this is the kind of activity that can make any subject come more alive to students.” – Bernadine Bush

Code/Art has trained 96 Miami Dade public school art and tech teachers representing over 60 schools, the majority of those being Title I schools! 

Students in Action

To date, Miami Dade Public School Art Teachers have reported teaching Code/Art to 2,751 students. This was the first introduction to coding for 2,080 students. Of those, 1,154 were females students!
