Monday & Tuesday- Welcome to the third six weeks. As ever, we will take time to do our eleven minute protocol. After that, we have something new to explore today. You will be working with Adobe Illustrator. I want to start you out with a description of the difference between vector graphics and raster graphics, which are also called bitmap graphics. I will assign you either raster or vector graphics to quickly research, at which point, I'll have each of you conduct a little research. We'll share what we have learned after five minutes. When we know the difference, I want to walk you through some basics of the pen tool. With that, we will move into the first of several lessons that will help you understand the pen tool, which is one of the most important tools in Illustrator. After you have drawn a whole lot of lines with this tool, I want to hit the pause button and ask you to more specifically explain the difference between a vector graphic and a raster graphic. Following that, we will work through a second lesson in the pen tool. Before we leave here today, we will work through this lesson where we will make lots of shapes. In this one, we'll experiment with stroke and fill.

Wednesday & Thursday- Here's the link to your eleven minute protocol. After that, we'll jump back into Illustrator. You have straight lines all figured out by now, so it's probably time to start drawing some curves. This lesson is a good start. When we finish that, you may be able to make some shapes in this lesson. Before you leave, please answer these questions to review your knowledge about Illustrator.

Friday- Let's get in a bit more practice with the pen tool. Try drawing buildings and trees in this lesson. Before you leave today, you should have enough skill to complete this maze.

Monday & Tuesday- This is our second week of learning Illustrator. What I want us to do first is recap what we've learned so far. This lesson will help us with that. When we finish that, we can start working on a creative project. I will walk you through a lesson where you'll draw a city from scratch. In addition to that, you will, of course, complete your eleven minute protocol.

Wednesday & Thursday- We should be able to wrap up the image of the city in class today. After that, I want you to try to write the word vector as it is shown in this lesson. Additionally, we'll take care of the eleven minute protocol.

Friday- It's the last day before Thanksgiving break, and we should be able to draw shapes freehand without the guided help like we've had in some of our lessons. Show me these shapes and these animals before we head out for our break.
