In the lights of the Information Renaissance, like the unavoidable transformation of everyday practices, contemporary educational perspectives and principles are going through a state of change. Recently, the proliferation of computer aided art education is widening its doors, because the contemporary artists are using computers not only as an assistive apparatus, but as a collaborative platform to infiltrate far beyond their imaginations and expressions. Therefore, the notion of creativity cannot be limited only to a human-centred approach, rather there is a significant need for discussing the discourse of dialectic creativity that embodies human technology collaborations. In this article, Computational Creativity is explored as an educational content for contemporary arts education with its implications and its various dimensions in the creative thinking process. In this study, a new course content called Creative Coding which is included in the curriculum of Sabanci University, Istanbul is explored as a proposed model to shed lights on the Computational Creativity. The course content and its methodologies will be explained while examining the technological dimensions in the art education.
