A digital abstract artwork.
Students of grade first Decroly developed the project “A digital abstract work of art”. This project was born from the motivation of the students to transcend the use of the programming language that they have worked with in the Computing class.
From curiosity and the development of computational thinking, Heidy Romero, a teacher in the Computing area, invited the Art area to join in the development of the project. The teacher Nubia Perilla gave an exhibition to the students about the characteristics of abstract art and its main artists.
The children understood the basic use of the programming language in Pencil Code, such as sequence, patterns, loop or loops, and different specific codes related to color, sound and text, to take digital skills to another level and computational thinking.
Once the children had all the necessary knowledge to create their work of abstract art, they turned the class into a living museum, where each student made their work with face-to-face and virtual spectators, to finally share the emotions that inspired them and resolve the doubts of the assistants.
This project is special for the student community because it was the first time that Preschool students made digital abstract art, using programming language.
