p5.js is a powerful open source visual programming framework that allows you to create interactive visuals and art with code.
Emily Xie walks you through p5.js from the ground up—from initial setup and foundational concepts to the library’s core functions to its more advanced features—covering the coordinate system, shape primitives, lines, stroke, fill, color, mapping, events, and transforms. You’ll be given free rein to create, tinker, and experiment with the library. Join in to learn how to create a generative art piece of your own original design and gain a newfound appreciation for code as a medium for creative expression.
Emily Xie is an engineer at Sotheby’s. Previously, she worked at Squarespace and made art with code as a tech resident at Pioneer Works, a Brooklyn-based experimental arts center. Outside of work, Emily enjoys cooking, photography, and video games.
