Gray Area’s Creative Code Immersive is a ten-week education program focused on giving a small cohort of students a strong foundation in the art of creative code. Each week, our resident instructors guide participants through a sequence of topics that are designed to both lead to mastery of core techniques and strengthen students’ professional practice in the field of art and technology.

The enrollment fee is $3000. In order to make our courses as accessible as possible, payment terms are available. Students will need to provide their own laptop. All additional materials will be provided. Interested in being a Creative Code Immersive Teaching Assistant? Fill out our TA application here.

For artists without coding experience interested in this course, we recommend taking our 10 day Web Skills for Artists 101 workshop.
