Explore the fascinating world of coding through a vibrant art workshop for kids at the Darling Square Library Makerspace.

Creative Coding is a great way to introduce your kids to fundamental coding skills, where the goal is to make something expressive rather than functional.

In this beginner-level workshop, participants will use the magic of code to create printable artwork they can take home. 

What you’ll learn:

  • Our experienced facilitator Jared Berghold will guide you through coding to make your very own computer-generated artwork!

What you’ll make and have access to:

  • All materials provided to create your artwork

  • Computing devices: high powered laptops

  • A hard copy postcard size (6” x 4”) print of your artwork on photo paper to take home 


  • Cost: $10 for each child

  • Bookings and class size: maximum 10 children – bookings essential

  • Suitable for: children aged 8 to 12 years

  • Experience level: suitable for beginners, basic keyboard skills recommended

About the facilitator: The workshop will be led by Jared Berghold. Jared is a creative coder who has been making art with code for over 15 years. Jared co-created the interactive artwork Always Coming, Always Going for Vivid Sydney in 2017 and later founded the Creative Coding Studio:
