Class Description

Processing combines programming with art and 2D and 3D graphics. Try some examples. We will create fun programs like these.

Processing is a toolkit for making cool graphics and animations, and it works with Python and any language that runs on the Java environment.

Combining programming in a real language with cool graphics makes a fun way to learn.

Preparation

If you have no programming experience, please first spend some time with Scratch or Tynker, getting some experience with things like:

  • repeat
