Intro to Creative Computing: 1st Day

Today, our class practiced creating colored shapes with the Java-based computer program Processing.  Among these shapes were ellipses, quadrilaterals, triangles, lines, points, and arcs. We also learned how to build our own custom shapes through specifying vertices on the display using Cartesian coordinates. Eventually, I succeeded in making an angry PAC-man in a top hat using arcs, ellipses, lines, and my own custom shape. In addition to this, I also wrote a program which would enable the user to draw on the display using the computer mouse. Here are some screenshots from both programs:
