Art + Code Teacher Camp 2024

a hybrid teacher training program for art teachers focused on making visual art via open-source coding tools to deepen the technical work in their classroom with their students. Participant teachers will receive stipends, in-depth mentorship, travel support, and supplies. They will be asked to generate a lesson plan based on their training to be shared publicly via Processing Foundation publications. Applications from public school art teachers based in California will receive priority.

During a two-month fall program, a selected group of art teachers will be invited to learn how to make digital media with code via platforms such as p5.js or Processing. The program will be offered virtually via Zoom from September to December 2024. There will be an in-person kick-off event at UCLA in September and a potential closing event in San Francisco in December.

$3,000 is provided to each teacher for their time, travel, and classroom expenses related this program.
