We Use Art to Inspire
Girls in Computer Science.
Code/Art’s Innovative Approach
Code/Art is a non-profit organization on a mission to increase the number of girls in computer science by delighting and inspiring them with the creative possibilities of computer programming. We strive to put young women, particularly young women from historically underrepresented groups, on track for future tech careers by providing welcoming early coding programs that focus on art, creativity and social good.
We have reached over 8,000 girls to date!

Through art-infused coding programs, Code/Art provides fun and welcoming early coding opportunities for girls.
Code/Art offers year round programming for both K-12 Students and Educators.
Workshops and school year support for K-12 art and tech teachers to learn Code/Art’s introductory lessons in order to implement them into their classrooms.
CODE/ART CLUBS & WORKSHOPS
Online and in-person coding clubs where girls learn web development, mobile apps, 3D modeling, game design, and code their own artwork in community!
Code/Art’s national competitions combine creativity, art, and coding to inspire girls to pursue computer science while also helping change society’s view of what a coder looks like. These friendly competitions are for girls, non-binary and genderqueer students in grades 3-12 residing in the U.S. Entry period runs from October through February.
“I love coding and art and I loved how you could add them together to make something beautiful.”
Valentina N., Code/Art Club Student
“I love when you look back at your code and it looks really complex it’s really cool to think “wow I did that and I understand it.””
Camila P., Code/Art Club Student
"It was very rewarding to scroll through the lines of code knowing that I wrote them. I'm proud to see the improvement from when I first started working on the project and the time I submitted it."
Livia U., Code/Art Competition Participant
"No matter how long it took, I am very happy that I got to code. What I found most rewarding about this was being able to code something, getting to have fun, and learning new things while doing this project."
