How to make creative, interactive art projects in JavaScript


Update: This site is undergoing a refresh for 2023! Sign-up for the newsletter above to learn more when about when the changes go live. New articles, regular updates, interviews and job boards forthcoming.

This site is a collection of links to libraries, frameworks, services, articles, tutorials and other resources that seem helpful for creating interactive, expressive artwork via JavaScript. It's intended to accompany and supplement my talk of the same name.

Topics include making art through computers, creativity & JavaScript
