Our high school students have been learning about graphic design and digital drawing this semester. They have had a great time learning the features and tools of the programs Procreate and Adobe Illustrator while drawing on iPads. Students have learned how to work in multiple layers, how to apply drawing aids like perspective grids and blurring filters, how to resize, rotate, duplicate, and stretch objects. They have used this knowledge to create personal graphic memoirs, to create animated GIFs, to draw portraits of themselves and others, and as a final project, to develop a personal logo that can be printed on a product at our local Oxford Copy Shop. We took a walk there to hear from the in house graphic designer, and to see some work in progress in the shop.
