Learn to think like a coder in this two-part workshop, led by Summer 2019 Tech Resident Grayson Earle. Using Processing, a graphics programming environment suitable for both beginners and industry professionals, students will learn the fundamentals of programming through hands-on exercises and practical demonstrations on art historical examples of Sol Lewitt, Bridget Riley, and Casey Reas. On Day 1, participants will learn to draw basic shapes to the screen, manipulate colors, and “have the computer do the math for us.” On Day 2, we will use mouse and keyboard input to make our creations interactive and engaging.
Audience: No prior coding experience is necessary.
Materials: Participants are required to bring their own laptops.
