We are in a special era surrounded by numerous emerging technologies that can be applied to the creative practice to enrich creation or generate new ideas. The workshop is for artists and creatives who wants to use coding to make generative art, design, animation and typography. Code is a great tool to bridge art and mathematics, and extend the possibilities of creativity. Coding also becomes a more and more powerful tool for artists, designers, writers, activists for making art in a new way.

Through this workshop participants will learn about the history and context of “coding art”, as well as basic coding skills through using Processing, an open-source programming software. The instructor, Liu Chang, will lead a series of activities and exercises for attendees to better understand the work flow, algorithms, and code logic. The lecture will be accompanied by hands-on activities during the process. After the workshop, she will also provide the syllabus and resources of coding tutorial, class examples, books, and websites to attendees.  Attendees will be able to practice the technique and become knowledgeable about this topic. The goal of the workshop is that attendees are able to create an art piece by themselves.
