Reinforce introductory drawing in Processing by having students draw a simple logo students are familiar because using a recognized cultural icon students helps keep students motivated.

  • This is a great activity to use as a capstone a lesson sequence on drawing in Processing.
  • Some examples of logos students could draw are the Apple logo, Android logo, a simple cartoon character, etc.
    • The shape chosen should be simple enough for students to be able to draw it early in the course.
    • Allow students to customize these drawings in however they like.
  • Tell students you’ll use the most popular resulting image(s) (or a collage of all images produced) as a class mascot for the following year.
    • This incentive pushes many students to go the extra mile on this assignment.
