Discover how to use abstraction in your artwork through guided projects. Experiment with a variety of drawing and painting materials, learn about historical and contemporary approaches to abstraction, and develop your own personal vision. Suitable for all levels, including beginners.

Coding for the Web: Essential Skills
5 5
by patricia - April 2019

The coding for beginners was an excellent course.It made me understand the concepts about coding and how it works. I have enjoyed so much Dalia's lessons (tutor).I've liked the resources that she uses and the structure of the course. Also, she has a fantastic approach respecting the different needs of each student. Furthermore, Dalia made me feel confident that coding is something that I can learn! It has empowered me to go further and even considering about become a web developer.
