Coding for Artists: The Web as Installation Site

Jun 04 - Aug 26
3.50 CEUs

Leah Beeferman Visual artist, website designer and developer, graphic designer

This course is designed for all artists interested in using the Internet for conceptual and creative production. We will focus on building a foundation of core coding languages and platforms such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript and Python. Since this course is designed for artists and not programmers, we will be focusing on developing proficiency with coding-based terms and concepts while working on building web projects. Some strategies explored in the projects will include animation, interactivity, video, sound and engagement with existing web platforms. Along with a rigorous studio-based technical approach, the class will also broach art-making using the web in historical and contemporary practice.
NOTE: This is an introductory course, no prior coding experience is necessary. This course is fully online and asynchronous. Without a set meeting time each week, students can learn and participate on their own schedule. However, there are assignments that will be due by specific dates.
