Participate in The Hour of Code™ with
Digital Media Academy

The Hour of Code™ is a nationwide initiative by Computer Science Education Week and Code.org to introduce millions of students to one hour of computer science and computer programming.

This year, we’ve created a drawing and animation lesson that you can complete right here using the same technology used to power our DMA Online courses! Using Javascript, you’ll learn the basics of using programming commands and scripts to draw and animate a creature of your own creation.
