Our Grade 10 Media Arts students are getting extra creative these days! Over the past couple of months they have learned how to use Adobe Illustrator and have been designing unique digital illustrations.
They started learning the ins and outs of Adobe Illustrator before the March Break and have continued to expand their knowledge through the transition to online learning. They have a variety of resources to help them navigate this software such as watching video tutorials, completing written tutorials, or meeting up with their teacher, Ms. Liburd, in Google Meets where she can share her screen and teach them directly.
For their first project, they were tasked with creating an original, detailed illustration of an original animated character. The character had to have a clear theme and identity, as well as one prop. From a guitar-playing robot to spaceman server, the students were very creative with their illustrations!
Once they completed their character, they moved onto their second project: designing a food truck. They had to come up with a specific type of cuisine, create a restaurant logo and design a unique exterior for their truck. Ranging from steamy dumplings to wacky waffles, there were a variety of delicious looking trucks!
