When designing digital tools, it’s important to consider the concept of separating data and design; one of the most fundamental principles in software development. But why is it so crucial and how does it relate to artistic education? In this text, we will delve into the benefits of separating data and design, opening access to the distinct layers, and explore how the “Separation of Concerns” intersects with artistic education. We hope to highlight the importance of creating digital tools that are not only functional, but also try to meet the different forms and needs within artistic education, as well as the disciplines’ unique teaching methods and learning styles.
