About This Class

ba598aed

This is a class for people who have never coded before (or have very little) and want to explore the possibilities of generating art with code. You will learn how easy and quick it is to create beautiful generative designs in code using a language called Processing.

If you can type, you can code beautiful images!  Learn the basic building blocks of code and how to apply them to generative art in this class.  We will discuss the following (and much more):

  • What is generative art?
  • What is Processing?  How do I get it and use it?
  • What are the basic building blocks of sketches and animations in Processing?
  • What are some basic functions?
  • How do I use randomness?
  • How do you code a random walk?

Hey, everybody! My name is Melissa Wiederrecht. I am a lover of art, mathematics, computer science, and most especially everything that lies in the intersection of any two or three of those.

I have two classes about generative art, and one class about Drawing Symmetric Patterns Live In Illustrator.  Please check them out!  Thanks ;)
