Adobe Illustrator (Ages 10-14)

Adobe Illustrator is a program used by both artists and graphic designers to create vector images. So what is Adobe Illustrator used for? It is typically used to create illustrations, charts, graphs, logos, diagrams, cartoons or real photographs, and more. After becoming familiar with the Illustrator's user interface, students will go on to learn how simple it is to create complex vector shapes using the powerful tools available within Illustrator. Students will get to try their hand at creating logos, characters, graphics, and their own unique artwork.
