About This Class

This class is suitable for anyone with a desire to create abstract generative digital paintings.

You will need to download and install the free software Processing here.

And you will also need to download the code from the class project page - Enjoy!

This class will show you how to create abstract digital paintings, random image grids & collages using pre-written code that runs in Processing.

That's right! You can begin to develop an understanding of the power of programming without learning how to program.

You will work with PNG images that will create color and abstraction as well as masks that will generate transparency in your project. This means you can edit and generate the basic images in Photoshop, Illustrator or even applications like paint.

This class is definately well worth a look!
