We can see in this quest the digital revolution has created a universal medium for creation and distribution. This has led to an increasingly integrated landscape of creative activity ranging from digital photography to product design and architecture, music production, games design and visual effects in film. This is an area that combines high levels of artistic and technological skills. It is an area of economic importance which, in a world facing the automation of routine jobs, and the growing pervasiveness of digital technology is set to become more prominent.

Technological change has enabled new forms of artistic expression and business activity. It has resulted in new visual and musical styles, new business models and ways of creation. Many of the products that surround us and much of the music that we listen to is created on computers. The growth of virtual and augmented reality (VR and AR) is expanding the market and domains for artistic expression. 3D printing and scanning allow for rapid prototyping and the transmutation of objects between the physical and digital realms. Sophisticated mathematics and computer science combined with artistic skills power modern blockbusters and computer games to large audiences.

Music and art are important sectors within our modern day society. The teaching and acknowledgment of the importance of the creative sector as an integral part of human development, can lead to the creation of new and innovative solutions to some of the worlds most complex problems. Over the 3 difficulty levels in this project, different styles of art and music will be explored in the context of coding and computer science, leading to 3 separate, fully developed projects.


In the advanced section there will be focused on creating a code in turtle graphics that enables users to create spirals (dependant on the parameters entered).


In order to complete this task you will need to go to the resources section under the documents tab and open the document titled: Python advanced- spiral program. Slides two onwards provides you with step by step guide on how to complete the task.

You are encouraged to read this documenent here:7 Tips for Women Returning to Work After a Career Gap this will provide you with some guidance on what to consider when you are planning your return back to work.

In the document section there is a publication titled:"Comprehensive Report of the Testing Phase of Tandem Training to Develop Creative, Linguistic, And Socio[1]Cultural Skills of Migrant and Refugee Women". This is about the “WomInCreativePower” (WICP) project which aims to support the full integration of migrant and refugee women into their receiving communities by investing in developing skills related to entrepreneurship and the creative sector. This document will provide you a better understanding of which skills you need to develop and how in order to get back into the job market.



Now you know if you’re looking to make a career pivot into tech or to switch to a more technical role within your field, knowing at least one relevant programming language is a must. This doesn’t just apply to developers, though. coders should know Python and Scratch. Project managers should know the inner workings of the tools they help craft.

You have completed your own spiral program using complex principles of recursive subroutines and turtle graphics.

Learning Objectives

  • In this activity you will learn to code in turtle graphics modules that enables users to create spirals (dependant on the parameters entered).
  • You develop problem solving. You must be aware of and apply appropriate coding skills for different requirements or scenarios.
  • You will develop ability to undertake abstract thinking, the ability to think about objects, principles, and ideas that are not physically present.
  • You will develop resilience. Coders and developers gain an ability to move past their debugging frustrations and continue to find solutions to help complete their projects.
  • Implement programming knowledge to real-life application
