In partnerships with San Francisco Organizations, we teach Youth the skills necessary for hacking, coding, and soldering creative projects together. Promising Teenagers are selected to receive a Creative Code Apprenticeship, where they are given the opportunity to learn Creative Coding fundamentals utilizing technologies HTML5, CSS, Processing, and Arduino. Through these tools, students explore how to use web development, data visualization, generative art, gaming, and interactive media to create new works of art that tell their own story. Through Gray Area’s education program we put the Art in S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Art, and Math) and help inspire careers in art and technology.
