I am an artist, programmer and researcher. I am researching the teaching of software to artists. My experience has been that there is a great deal of resistance to this. I am interested to learn what has been the experience of other educators who teach coding to artists using scratch.
Thank You

Hi Greg,

Thanks for (re)posting this post. I have a background working teaching artists, but not working with TAs and coding. I'm curious to know more about the resistance you've heard about and I wonder whether it was the subject (was it discomfort with digital media?) or the way the subject was introduced (was it a mandate?).

Here's a ScratchEd story from last year that relates - about an Artist in Residence who uses Scratch with student artists:

I would love to continue this conversation and keep looking for resources.
