The students will continue to grow in their knowledge of Illustrator. The students are working with different tools to recreate robots, flowers, the screw driver and wrench, and cartoon line art.
During the classes this week:
Monday: Reviewing the copy/paste, sizing of objects and recreating the Screw Driver/Wrench. The students will attempt to build first. I will walk through instructions to build cut out in the wrench and how to build gears.
Tuesday: Review of the pen tool, working with lines and curves, recreating the apple assignment that will be turned in for a grade. I will walk through how to use the stroke and adding arrow ends.
Wednesday: Pen tool has been a challenge for the students. Practicing on Line art and filling colors. Cartoon line art will help the students practice the pen tool and learn how to have better control when using the tool in Illustrator.
Thursday: Students will learn to use gradients, transform, layers. On their own they will create their name in Graffiti art.
Friday: The first large project! AQUOS. Students will build from scratch. Recreate – poster shown on overhead projector and images on wall.
The students will have gained a great deal of knowledge in Illustrator and use what they’ve learned to build Aquos!
