Intro to Processing for Artists
Learn the basics of Processing, an indispensable programming tool for artists. Join Tess Sutherland as she teaches the ABC’s of algorithmic drawing and interactive animations. Session 1 will teach the basics of drawing with code. Session 2 will show how to animate code through parameterization, and how to interface the mouse and keyboard with your creations. In both sessions, Tess will show examples of a wide range of artworks made with Processing and identify further resources for students. Students will work towards creation of a flexible, interactive drawing, and develop the coding skills necessary to step into a wide variety of possibilities in Processing. Completion of this workshop, along with basic understanding of arduino, will qualify students for Tess' intermediate workshop on Interfacing Processing and Arduino for Live Interaction, running Saturday, June 17.
Dates: Tuesday November 14 and 21
