Introduction to Creative Coding (LCCA)
I recently had the privilege of conducting an introductory workshop series on creative coding at the London College of Contemporary Arts LCCA
In collaboration with course director Maya Tayara, we created a dedicated online workshop focusing on creative coding as design discipline. Students dived into the fundamentals of the p5.js coding environment, learning about variables, loops and functions. In practical examples they explored how to use these tools to manipulate images and typography.
A significant aspect of the workshop involved students creating interactive and generative visual compositions, inspired by early pioneers like Vera Molnár and Anton Stankowski. They experimented with code as a medium to turn their compositions into interactive experiences. The primary objective of the course was to expand the toolbox of traditional designers with the vast possibilities of creative coding.
