Algorithmic Art — Learn Programming Through Art!

Are you new to programming but a fan of art? Embark on this journey as we learn how to program the computer to make art for us.

This class will introduce students to block programming on Scratch, as a means for producing algorithmic art, i.e. art that is made by computer algorithm. Programming can often feel like an abstract concept, but this class will ground those concepts in tangible art that the students end up producing. Students need no prior programming experience, although even students who have programmed in Scratch before will likely learn new concepts (variables, pen tool, forever loop, etc.) The format of the class will be centered on tutorials provided by the instructor, followed by student producing their own algorithmic art and coming back during the same session to share their artwork. The whole class will be highly interactive and students will be expected to participate.

Learning goal: Become familiar with some basic programming concepts and the free Scratch software.

Hi Drew, Wonderful job on your session on SAT Math! Your explanations were really thorough, and you shared several tips and tricks to eliminate the wrong answers and solve the problems quickly. You also let the learners attempt the problems and reminded them to be careful when reading the questions. I liked that you were calm, composed, and patient with the learners.

Thank you so much for the classes, they were a lot of fun and I learned so much! You are an awesome teacher!

Learner · 19 days ago

You interacted with the learners very well, by addressing their names. You were patient and made learners feel comfortable, not feel intimated when they got answers wrong. You also strengthen their confidence by letting the learners attempt the problems and using a more appreciative tone.

Thank you for your time these past sessions! I cannot wait to finally put the tips and tricks you taught us to use on the final exam!

Will Tutors Be Replaced by AI?

ChatGPT is the talk of the town these days. As someone who runs a tutoring platform, I'm now regularly asked if AI is going to replace our human tutors.
