Abstract: Abstract Background Generative art is created by a system that operates autonomously, or semi-autonomously, rather than directly by the artist. The artist creates the system and establishes parameters that affect the outcome, but the outcome itself emerges from the system rather than from the artist. Generative art systems are frequently computer programs, although biological, social, or other systems may also be used as well. Findings Computer programming environments are often technically demanding, but there are also those that are more accessible and offer novices ways to engage with concepts and practices of generative art. We report on our experience with two such environments, TurtleArt and Scratch, that we have used in workshops with preservice and in-service teachers over the past several years. Conclusions TurtleArt and Scratch are two programming environments that are accessible to novices and provide a way to explore and create works of generative art.
