I’m working on developing an “Art in Scratch” curriculum to run at Muckykids. Making art — especially generative/procedural art, but also storytelling, sound, and more — is a very engaging way into programming for some kids. Scratch is perfectly suited to introducing programming through the lens of art.
I particularly enjoy trying to make surprising visual effects emerge from as few lines of code as possible and simple user interactions. In support of developing my Art in Scratch curriculum, and just because it’s fun, I’m trying to do a quick generative art experiment every day. I’m collecting them in a Generative Art Experiment-a-Day studio. Check ’em out and remix!
