Abstract
The increasing use of digital technologies presents a new set of challenges that, in addition to key economic and societal viewpoints, also reflects similar use in both education and culture. On the other hand, instead of a challenge, digitalisation of our environment can also be seen as new material and a new medium for expression. This article examines creative coding both as a method to better understanding of digital structures, and as the ability for selfexpression through digital technology. The research focuses on Käsityökoulu Robotti, a type of art school for children, which offers children teaching on art and technology. Through ethnographic research, this article examines how creative coding works as a teaching method in Käsityökoulu Robotti to promote both artistic expression and a critical understanding of technology.
