Course description

The modern web browser provides artists, designers, and creative individuals with a new virtual canvas to explore and communicate ideas in the digital realm. However, that creative potential often remains unfulfilled due to the intimidation or difficulty of learning to code. Likewise, many aspiring creative people still struggle to find their own voice and make their work more personal and unique. This course helps students solve both of these common problems for those working with digital media. Coursework introduces a simple JavaScript library called P5.JS. This web-friendly language is designed for beginners interested in coding for the visual arts and digital media. We use this tool for the creation of audiovisual assets and the manipulation of images, audio, video, and other digital media.
