Adobe Illustrator Workshop

Adobe Illustrator Workshop, October 25th

This week, students from all classes gathered in a cozy computer cluster in Y2E2 to learn the basics of Adobe Illustrator from┬áCindy Chang (’14). Most attendees had never used Illustrator before, but the Cindy proved that it is easy for anyone to jump into creating a drawing. Cindy led the workshop-ers through a step-by-step process of drawing a neat robot graphic, providing a solid introduction to the fundamentals of the Illustrator interface: drawing rectangles, ellipses, and other polygons, adding color, manipulating the texture of the color, blending shapes, cutting away from shapes, etc. Many people let their sense of creativity loose by the end, resulting in a variety of unique robots.┬áThis one’s going on the fridge door!
