Processing is a programming language and environment built for the media arts and design communities.

It is created to teach fundamentals of computer programming within a visual context and to serve as a software sketchbook. It is used by students, artists, designers, architects, and researchers for learning, prototyping, and production. More information on Processing can be found at www.processing.org.

What you’ll need: computer (laptops are nice). Windows or OSX.

Each meeting will consist of a lecture and lab, with an emphasis on hands on programming.

So, for example, if you sign up for Machine Sewing 101 and pay the $155 class fee, but then remember that you have trapeze school final exams that conflict with the Sewing class and shouldn’t have signed up after all, we will refund you $130 of your tuition payment.
