Generative portraits commonly refers to portraits made with code. We take information from an image and use it to create fun and unique portraits through pixel manipulation.
In this 3 hour session, we will learn how to make these portraits using Processing, a creative coding language. Through this workshop, emphasis will be placed on applying these tools, enabling you to create your own artistic piece using technology!
Participants need not have previous experience with Processing, but a familiarity with computers is necessary, and a laptop.
You will also be able to take home a framed copy of your art at the end of the workshop :)
