Learn advanced creative coding techniques with ThreeJS, WebGL, and GLSL in this one day workshop at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Toronto.
The event will take place on Saturday, August 24, 2019, between 9 AM and 5 PM.
Matt DesLauriers is a Toronto-born artist and creative coder now living in London, UK.
His interactive installations have been displayed in special events at the Louvre Museum in Paris and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. His work was part of Reykjavik’s 2019 Winter Lights Festival in Iceland and Ontario Place Park’s 2018 Winter Light Exhibition in Toronto.
Matt is active in the open source community and has given numerous talks and workshops on creative coding at venues such as FITC in Toronto and Amsterdam, Frontend Masters in Minneapolis, GROW in Paris, and Nodeschool in Toronto.

The skills you'll learn here can be applied to many fields, including AR/VR, game development, interactive installations, VJing, generative design, media art, and more.
You'll learn how to create an interactive web artwork, but also how to export your ThreeJS code for high-resolution prints, GIF and MP4 loops, and permanent installations.
Participants should arrive with a laptop that can run WebGL applications, a recent version of Node.js and npm, a code editor like VSCode, and a modern browser such as Chrome or FireFox.
