About CodeArt

CodeArt uses art to inspire girls to code! They hold regular coding workshops and events focussed primarily on girls grades 4-12. Their upcoming event “Code Art Miami” takes place at MAGIC at MDC Wolfson Campus on Saturday, March 18th. It is a digital art showcase and all-girls coding competition that provides a vehicle to inspire young women to learn to code and to showcase their creations. It also seeks to foster a sense of community among the participating student groups and pave the way for future collaborations. At these year’s event there will also be mini-workshops for attendees of all ages and genders — including a p5.js class taught by one of the experts in the field of Creative Coding, Cassie Tarakajian.

All proceeds from this workshop will go to supporting the CodeArt.Miami scholarship, which provides a full 2-year tuition scholarship to study Animation Art or Game Development and Design at Miami Dade College.


Ironhack is an international coding school that believes the best way to learn how to do something, is by actually doing it. This ideology is reflected in its teaching practices, which consist of immersive and part-time programming courses ranging from eight weeks to six months, aimed to equip students with the knowledge and tools of the latest web and mobile development technologies. Ironhack has three locations in Barcelona, Madrid and Miami.
