Introduction to Generative Art, Part 2: Coding of Mandelbrot Sets

In our first workshop about generative art, we explained how a computer can be used to create artistic designs. The designs are the result of running a set of information through a series of instructions (an algorithm) many times. The information and algorithm together are used to create a Mandelbrot Set, which is the actual design. This workshop will provide insight to how Mandelbrot Sets are designed and the algorithms used to create generative art. After this session, students will receive a list of resources to continue exploring coding for algorithms for generative design.

Limited to grades 8-12 and adults having adequate experience in coding and math.

Pre-requisites: Some experience will be required with any text-based coding language, such as Python, Java, JavaScript, Swift or others. Participants must have learned math at least through graphing and beginning algebra.

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.
