Join Kim Munoz as she shares how to navigate the drawing interface by zooming in and out of your designs, use the properties panel to add color, and use the pathfinder panel to combine shapes in a variety of ways. Participants will also have an opportunity to create their own designs that will assist them in teaching their students how to effectively use Adobe Illustrator.

Learning Objectives:
  • Explain how to navigate the drawing interface by using shortcuts to pan the screen and zoom in and out.

  • Describe how to use the pathfinder tool panel to manipulate various shapes.

  • Create a geometric design using the shapes tool that incorporates various strokes, color fills, and gradients.

  • Special Technology Instructions: Participants will need access to a computer or laptop, a non-school, personal Google account, and Adobe Illustrator Software (they offer a free trial for 7 days). SimpleK12ís Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.

    Assessment: Participants will complete an exit ticket to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning .
