Introduction to Generative Art, Part 1: Combining Coding, AI, and Art

The time for this workshop is 2:00-3:30pm.

In this workshop, students will learn to create unimaginable designs through the use of coding and algorithms. Unlock the power to create an infinite number of artistic, computer-generated images by understanding the fundamentals of how programming, algorithms, and math are combined for this purpose. Participants will gain experience using a pre-built software routine of a Mandelbrot Set to create original designs and discover how the images can be explored by zooming through an infinite number of levels. The designs look very different, but they are all in one family and are possible to create after this session. In addition, students will have the opportunity to experiment with template code and will create their own designs by the end of the workshop.

After this session, students will receive a list of resources to continue exploring generative design. A following workshop will be offered for older students looking to dive deeper into the math concepts, algorithms, and code involved with generative art.

Pre-requisites: students in grades 6-12 or by permission, and adults. No coding experience is required.

Computer requirements: computers will be provided but participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops to make it easier to continue working with the methods at home.
