Artists have been using code to produce images and express themselves since the '60s. Recently we lost the pioneering 'Grande Dame' of computational art, Vera Molnár at 99! In the last 20 years a growing community of practitioners of "creative coding" has emerged, many using Processing (Java based), p5js (JavaScript based) or other programming languages. I can assure you it might be one of the most wonderfully fun ways of learning how to code. So let's see how we can use Python to draw amazing images, static, moving or interactive, using some of the latest and most promising Python creative coding tools.
