Join artist Guy Schofield for a set of free digital making workshops for 12-16 year olds about generative art.
Richmal Mangnall was the head of Crofton House school from 1808-1820. She wrote educational books which used simple questions and answers as a way of teaching young people about the world.
In these workshops, the Wakefield Museums and Castles team will discuss Richmal Mangnall and look at how question and answer systems are used in modern technology, including games and digital art.
Using software including Processing and Unity, you will learn programming and game design skills for making amazing digital artworks. You will also explore generative art: images created by rules you program yourself.
No experience in programming is required to take part and each workshop will be different.
You can attend one workshop, several or all of them.
The final works will be included in an exhibition at Wakefield One in January 2023.
