Are you a creative, artistic tech-oriented designer looking to put your talents to work in a stimulating and active environment of innovation? Join OF COURSE!
OF COURSE is the intersection of art, design and technology. It was established in New York in 2013 and the team is constituted of excellent interactive artists, hackers, computer poets and digital audio-visual experts.

For instance, OF COURSE landed China in 2015, where we set up a research center for creative coding in Shanghai and successfully offered three semesters of courses.
The purpose of OF COURSE is to provide Chinese artists and designers with opportunities to learn the 21st century’s interactive technology. Our courses cover several topics such as Audio Video System，Virtual Reality，Data Visualization and Physical Computing. For every theme, the class has at most fifteen students. Students will learn design, creative coding, prototyping, applied electronics, and fabrication. Instructors, assistants and entrepreneurship advisors will assist students in making an interactive art project.
The final work of the entire course takes the form of new media art, AR/VR project, data visualization, or wearable devices/fashion technology products. During the progression of study components, students will not only develop products with instructors, but also learn a bevy of career planning skills in entrepreneurship and in the technical field under the direction of entrepreneurship advisors. A graduation show will be held to present students’ works at the end of each course period.
