My friend Pedro invited me to give a 3 day online workshop for his web development students at Tskoli. The workshops were part of a module for expanding students horizons on what they could do with the skills they learned through the course.
I choose to give a creative coding focused workshop very much inspired by the Recreating the Past course I enrolled at the School for Poetic Computation.
We talked about the Vasulkas and picked a few of their work to recreate in order to revisit some of the programming structures they have learned such as for looks, colors and arrays.
The days started with a technical lecture followed by a recreation and a live coding Q&A:
- Getting started with p5js
- Color and Basic shapes
- For loops
- Map function
- Keyboard and mouse
