• Gray Area + Dolby

    Scrolling Landscapes – January 13, 2016

    • At Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, youth are taught the skills necessary for hacking, coding, and soldering creative projects together. 

      Promising teenagers were 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 explored how to use web development, data visualization, generative art, gaming, and interactive media to tell create new works of art that tell their own story.

    • Over the course of 10 weeks, 4 teenagers were awarded Creative Code Apprenticeships and worked alongside 2 Creative Code Artists to develop an interactive artwork titled "Objects for Calm and Chaos" for the Dolby Digital Art Wall at 1275 Market Street. 

      With the development of this artwork, Gray Area – in partnership with Dolby - will support the next generation of digital artists.
