About the Workshop

This workshop combines the basics of geometry and computer programming to create generative, interactive, and animated works of visual art. We will leverage Processing, a free-to-download and easy to learn, programming language to make computer-based visual art works. No programming or math experienced required, all are welcome!

Participants should download the Processing software, found here, prior to this workshop.

We hope you will be able to join us on Fridays at 1pm for the remainder of the semester for this arts and tech collaboration with the Co-Lab @Home team.
