Creative: Vector Art and Audio Design with Scratch

Creativity is to see what is and then make what could be. Early on in your creative process, you don't need advanced software and complicated installations—all you need is Scratch! Designed by MIT, it provides a vector editor and audio capture features right out of the box. Making your characters, stories, or even simple animated shorts jump off the screen is the name of the game. Record sounds, draw characters and backgrounds and flex your creative muscles. 

With Scratch as the backbone to handle interactivity, build your creative repertoire with character illustrations, comics, and interactive art. Create your own character designs, then bring them to life with stories and games. There are endless ways to express yourself, whether it’s via a funny chatbot friend you can talk to or study with, a game or story that recreates your week, or any other concept you can dream up. 

With guidance and structure, you can continue to explore coding concepts with visual blocks while having a blast making experiences to play yourself or share with others.

Online Course Requirements:
-Mac, Windows PC, or Chromebook only
