Animating our canvas is cool and all, but we can take things one step further by adding some code that'll allow users to interact with our canvas's objects. Adding interactivity to our canvas pieces creates a sort of surprise that web users don't normally expect. Look around the web, how many sites can you list off that include some sort of interactive art piece that meshes with the site's overall look and feel? Probably not many. In regards to making your site stand out from the rest, there's no better solution than adding an interactive design. Learn how, within this episode of Chris Courses.
