What will you be doing on this workshop?
On this creative coding workshop you will learn how to use a flexible software sketchbook to learn how to code. Designed for electronic arts, new media art and visual design, you will be guided through processing using Java language to ‘draw’ creative graphics on your screens.
- Understand what is processing and what it can be used for
- Be able to use software to draw shapes and create different colours
Aims of the Session:
1.1 Identify the reasons for using Processing software
2.1 Use software to plot coordinates to draw shapes using function names and parameters
2.2 Identify basic syntax involved in programming
2.3 Use software features to create designs
How long is the workshop?
As everyone learns at different speeds, the workshop is always delivered at your pace, over a minimum of 2 hours.
Session times are usually run between 10am & 2pm of given days, but occasionally we do change timings around to try to suit everyone’s availability.
We do also allow for additional time or a return for future sessions if you would like to or need to stay on for a bit longer to finish off.
