In Creative Computing you'll learn the fundamentals of computer programming through the creative process of making music and visual art. It's not _just_ an art/music course, and it's not _just_ a "coding" course: you'll need to use both halves of your brain, and (we hope) you'll have a lot of fun in the process.
Creative Computing is split into two components; one focused on music, one on visual art. After an introductory period, students will be allowed to choose one stream or the other (music or visuals) as the focus for their year's project (a final creative work to be presented in the end-of-year exhibition). These streams will run in parallel, and students from each one will work together (i.e. DJ+VJ).
The course caters to two types of students:
- those with an interest in and aptitude for IT (especially computer programming) who wish to apply and develop these skills in new and creative directions
- students with an interest in and aptitude for the creative arts (e.g. playing a musical instrument, painting/drawing) who are keen to incorporate & technology in their creative practice (but haven't necessarily done any IT or programming courses).
