This is Tanvi Kumar, a final year student at NIT-T, India. I’ve been working with p5 for a while now and did GSoC’18 under The Processing Foundation. Post this I’ve had the opportunity to interact with many from the community, especially during Processing Community Days here in India. It was at these events that I was exposed to the world of generative art or code based artwork and I’ve been hooked since.
While there are plenty of resources online to help one begin, as someone from an engineering background and not a lot of exposure to design and art (I’m improving), it was hard to identify where to begin. It’s great to see workshops happening around the country to teach more designers Processing tools and p5 to create more artwork, and to see coders learning how to create art, but I’d like to pitch something to bridge a gap further.
A tutorial on how to create artwork using p5. Starting from the very basics, to more complex pieces. I realise that there’s no world where one can create something very extensive because art is, in itself infinite. But there are some common tricks and tools, concepts and famous pieces that one can know.
Would love to know if this is feasible!
