For students who enjoy drawing & sketching, learn to take your drawings to a whole new level. Turn your sketches into cool graphics that can be printed on t-shirts, hats, bags, stickers, skateboards or even made into repeating patterns for leggings, tapestries & more. Draw your own little characters for storybooks or trading cards. Learn to transform sketchpad drawings & photos into print-ready graphics using Adobe Illustrator.
Students will be able to draw at camp or may also bring drawings from home. We will take short walks around campus to take photos to incorporate into their illustration imagery. Students learn how to edit their illustrations with colors and strokes, manipulate vector paths, apply colorful gradient effects, and how to incorporate type into their designs for finished artwork. Also covered, where & how to format their files in order to print correctly. Students will be able to set up their own online portfolio storefront and preview how their designs will look on many products in the marketplace.
Bring a USB flash drive to store and take home edited images (8GB or larger)
