Coding Workshop at the Painted Brain

Painted Brain’s coding workshop hosted by CodiePie teaches the basics of HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Each participant is developing their own Web App project to showcase on Painted Brain’s upcoming site under the Academy’s vocational program called Painted Brain Developer.

We believe these skills are prevalent for today’s job opportunities and can be used as a coping mechanism for decreasing stress and practicing mindfulness. Coding can bring a whole new level of research toward CBT. Many individuals with mental illness have claimed that coding is therapeutic and lowers stress. One theory is it increases the flow and activity of the neural pathway in the prefrontal cortices, which in return increases focus and decreases symptoms.

One goal of Codie Pie’s coding workshop with Painted Brain in the near future is to run an assessment to prove the theory. If you’re interested in starting a coding project, join in on Wednesdays at 11 am – 12:30 pm. For more information, contact David Israelian at
