About the Book
Make Art with Python teaches programming for creative people.
If you've struggled with learning programming in the past, or have thought to yourself that you'd never learn to program, this is the book for you.
It takes a non-traditional approach to teaching computer science and programming through visual programs.
Most programming books or courses focus on math problems and text manipulation as ways to teach the fundamentals of computer programming. Instead, Make Art with Python focuses on building creative, visual programs to learn the basics of computer programming and computer science.
If you've never considered yourself a "math" person, or you consider yourself a language, or visual first learner, the exercises will quickly get you up and running. You'll be writing your first program right from the beginning, and each chapter will bring about a new, fundamental insight about the process of programming.
