Creative Coding with Processing

NOTE: This is a two-part workshop, taking place on the afternoons of February 15 and 16. Registering and paying here will register you for both. The lessons are cumulative.

What is Processing?

Processing is a programming language, development environment, and online community. Put simply, it's a fantastic tool that allows artists, designers, and people previously without programming experience to create sophisticated applications. What kind of applications? You name it: generative images, interactive video, emergent behaviour... it's easier to see for yourself at the exhibition page on or at .

It's designed to be easy to learn, and the language is almost endlessly versatile thanks to additional code libraries contributed by Processing's enthusiastic and helpful community.

About the workshop:

Over three sessions, we'll introduce you to Processing, and get you creating your own program sketches. We'll touch topics that deal with images, interactivity, and manipulating data. This workshop is designed for those with little or no programming experience.

Do I need Prior Experience?


What do I need to bring?
