Generative Art with JavaScript | March Break Workshop

March 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Workshops, industry events and hackathons for 13-17 year old teens but designed to be a space for women, trans and beyond-binary teens.

Why learn JavaScript?

This workshop will focus on teaching the fundamentals of computer programming in a visual context, and highlight how simple mathematical equations can create beautiful and engaging outcomes. (You don’t need to be a math wizard – Processing does the calculating for us!)

We’ll use p5.js, which is a processing ‘flavour’ that builds upon the JavaScript programming language, and is often used in electronic arts, new media art, and visual design. The application itself allows anyone to code in something called a Sketchbook, where programs can be saved and previewed instantly. Learners will use geometrical shapes and lines to create interactivity with their mouse and keyboard, and use colours to create visually intricate designs!

Who is this for?

Our Teens Learning Code workshops and events offer female-identified, trans, and non-binary youth ages 13-17 opportunities to take action on ideas that will shape our future while leveraging the power of technology. Our learning experiences are much more than learning how to code. Our experiences empower teens to learn problem solving skills, how to turn ideas into reality, exposure to what a future in technology could look like, and much more.
