Code/Art Clubs

Coding Clubs, Camps & Workshops

Code/Art clubs are creative coding clubs that meet weekly either in person or online and are for 3rd-8th grade girls and non-binary students. Club participants learn web and mobile app development, 3D modeling, game design, and tools for digital art and design. Club instructors are often alumni, trained instructors with a CS background or are Code/Art-trained teachers who lead a club as a school elective or after school club.

Express Yourself

By adding the ART to Code, Code/Art clubs aim to have words like “creative” and “exciting replace “boring” and “difficult” in the minds of girls when they think about coding.

Find Community

Code/Art clubs are engaging, supportive and collaborative spaces where girls are free to learn together, ask questions, and help one another! 

Showcase Work

Students assemble a portfolio of cool coding projects and are also able to enter their projects in Code/Art’s national and regional coding competitions to win prizes and get their work recognized!

School Year Coding Clubs

Code/Art Jr. Clubs

“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.'”

End of Year Showcase

Code/Art Club members gain programming skills in the first two-thirds of the year that they utilize in a capstone group coding project – where they build a website, app, or game.

At the end of each school year, students present their projects during a showcase/graduation event hosted by Code/Art for parents, students and instructors to attend and celebrate the accomplishments from that shool year.
