Creative Coding Deep Dive for Beginners
What you'll learn
- Draw with code and create 5 unique animation projects for your creative coding portfolio
- Learn how to animate shapes and particle systems
- Explore creative coding techniques, from simple to more advanced
Making beautiful things with code can be easy if you take it step by step. Let’s explore creative coding and discover what can be done by combining different drawing and animation techniques.
Let me show you how to draw a simple line, animate it, and then turn it into more and more complex effects as we add more techniques to our creative coding toolkit, one by one.
Discover the secrets of creative coding today. The biggest secret is that it’s actually much easier than you think to create complex, beautiful animations. You just have to take it step by step. Everything makes sense if you break the process down into individual parts.
In the first beginner-friendly block, we will learn how to draw shapes on canvas and how to animate them, turning them into animated spirals, rainbow lightning bolts, and random scribbles.
Sections 2, 3, and 4
If you already understand the basics of drawing on an HTML canvas, you can skip directly to Section 2, where I start the main course project from scratch. We will create an animated flow field, experiment with it, and make it bend around text and images.
