Description



Girls Learning Code. Generative Art with Processing. Beginner workshop for ages 9-12.


Is the child in your life a visual learner? Do they enjoy creating digital art or playing with interactive visual technology?


Girls Learning Code is excited to host this generative art programming workshop with Processing! This workshop will focus on teaching the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context, and highlight how simple mathematical equations can create beautiful and engaging outcomes.


Processing builds upon the Java language, and is often used in electronic arts, new media art, and visual design. The application itself allows anyone to code in something called a Sketchbook, where programs can be saved and previewed instantly. Learners will use geometrical shapes and lines to create interactivity with their mouse and keyboard, and use colours to create visually intricate designs!


They will also be introduced to openprocessing.org, where they can share their sketches with others and view other amazing, experimental creations. Each Generative Art with Processing workshop has the same flow, but different activities. Come and create new artwork every time!


What will I have learned by the end of this workshop?

  • I can create algorithms in Processing

  • I can draw shapes using x,y coordinates

  • I can use conditionals to make my project interactive

  • I can use variables to track and change things in my project

  • I can use Open Processing to KEEP CODING!
