I’ve heard that you can teach people how to code through art. How does this work?
Do you know that many expert coders are artists and musicians? It takes creativity AND logical reasoning to build programs. Patterns in art often match patterns in science and nature. Try this pendant and greeting card project with your group. Use the Python I course and the Python Turtle app to create beautiful designs. Export the pendant design as STL files to print on a 3D printer, and as PNG files to use as an image in artwork. You can print the pendant on any 3D printer, and paint or decorate it afterward.
Here are resources to get you started:
Slide show, which you can share with your group.
Webinar of the slide show. Note: the lesson plans were added after the webinar was recorded.
Lesson plans. The last page can be printed and handed out to participants.
