You’ve been asking for new workshops, and last week we announced our electronics lineup. This week we introduce 3 new Processing Workshops at Metrix Create:Space.   Our instructor is Joseph Gray, a visual artist and designer who has taught workshops on Processing and Pure Data at Media 911, Cornish School of Arts and Frayed Wire.   Introduction to Processing April 17th 2:00-4:30 PM Cost: $50 for non-members An introduction to Processing (http://processing.org), a coding language designed for artistic applications.  Processing is quick to learn for beginning coders, particularly those with a visual background.  The language is simple yet capable of scaling to projects of almost any complexity.  It is easy to learn for non-programmers yet powerful enough for seasoned programmers to rapidly develop concepts.  Processing has the added benefit of being a free and open source tool that is used by a large and very active community of creative minds internationally.   This workshop will guide participants through the creation of a basic drawing tool to introduce the fundamental concepts of Processing.  The finished project will be a unique drawing application that can be tweaked and modified to create individual artworks.  These images can then be saved in a printable format to show how the language can rapidly turn ideas into tangible results.  Laptop Required.  Real-Time Animation with Processing April 24th 2:00-4:30 PM Cost: $50 for non-members This workshop is designed for coders already familiar with dot syntax and focuses on generative animation.  3rd party libraries for Processing will be utilized to create an OpenGL application for creating visuals in real-time.  This stand-alone fullscreen application will create intricate and complex animations that can be controlled with a mouse and keyboard.  The visual output of the app can then either be recorded to a video file or projected for live performances.  Laptop Required.   Processing with Arduino May 1st 2:00-4:30 PM Cost: $50 for non-members Processing+Arduino.  The Arduino (http://arduino.cc) development environment looks exactly the same as Processing, as it happens to be based off of it.  The two toolkits work in tandem beautifully, particularly with the Firmata libraries.  Firmata (http://firmata.org) is an Arduino firmware that creates a standard protocol to a variety of languages.  The library for Processing is a natural transition in particular.   In this workshop an Arduino will be used to create a custom hardware controller and then connected to an application created in Processing to control live visuals.  Laptop and Arduino Required.  Materials for the controller will be provided.  Familiarity with both Processing and Arduino suggested.

Introduction to Processing
April 17th 2:00-4:30 PM
Cost: $50 for non-members

An introduction to Processing (http://processing.org), a coding language designed for artistic applications.  Processing is quick to learn for beginning coders, particularly those with a visual background.  The language is simple yet capable of scaling to projects of almost any complexity.  It is easy to learn for non-programmers yet powerful enough for seasoned programmers to rapidly develop concepts.  Processing has the added benefit of being a free and open source tool that is used by a large and very active community of creative minds internationally.  

This workshop will guide participants through the creation of a basic drawing tool to introduce the fundamental concepts of Processing.  The finished project will be a unique drawing application that can be tweaked and modified to create individual artworks.  These images can then be saved in a printable format to show how the language can rapidly turn ideas into tangible results.  Laptop Required. 


Real-Time Animation with Processing
April 24th 2:00-4:30 PM
Cost: $50 for non-members


This workshop is designed for coders already familiar with dot syntax and focuses on generative animation.  3rd party libraries for Processing will be utilized to create an OpenGL application for creating visuals in real-time.  This stand-alone fullscreen application will create intricate and complex animations that can be controlled with a mouse and keyboard.  The visual output of the app can then either be recorded to a video file or projected for live performances.  Laptop Required.  


Processing with Arduino
May 1st 2:00-4:30 PM
Cost: $50 for non-members

Processing+Arduino.  The Arduino (http://arduino.cc) development environment looks exactly the same as Processing, as it happens to be based off of it.  The two toolkits work in tandem beautifully, particularly with the Firmata libraries.  Firmata (http://firmata.org) is an Arduino firmware that creates a standard protocol to a variety of languages.  The library for Processing is a natural transition in particular.  

In this workshop an Arduino will be used to create a custom hardware controller and then connected to an application created in Processing to control live visuals.  Laptop and Arduino Required.  Materials for the controller will be provided.  Familiarity with both Processing and Arduino suggested.
