Introduction to p5.js

In-person at InterAccess - Register Here!

Creative coding is a type of computer programming that prioritizes the expressive over the functional, used to create interactive installations, projections and projection mapping, sound art, and much more.

Interested but don’t know where to start? P5.js, a free and open-source software, is a great entry point! It’s designed to make coding accessible and inclusive for artists, designers, educators, beginners, and anyone else. Learn the basics of p5.js in this workshop by Tess Sutherland, and get started on your creative coding journey.
