Today you learned about an important computer science concept, events, while you built aproject in which paintings talk to the person looking at them.
Looking at art helps people understand the culture of the person who made it. It makespeople think. However, art wasn’t always accessible to everyone or easy for large numbersof people to see and experience. Think about famous paintings that hang in museums faraway or art installations in foreign countries that you never get to see. Through the internet,computers have helped bring art to more people. The Google Art Project Museum View, for examplelets you look at artwork in the Museum of Modern Art from anywhere, even from the comfortof your own home... The Google Art Museum uses events just likethe ones you learned about today. When the user clicks on an area of the screen, thecamera moves to that section. Sharing your project in Scratch makes it possiblefor other users to experience and enjoy it. But, they might not understand it or see theawesome coding you built if you don’t explain how your project works. Write instructionson the project page for the Scratch community. Tell them which keys to press and anythingelse they need to know. Next club, you will use the computer to create artwork.
