S2 and S3 pupils have been working with Adobe Illustrator to create a vector drawing of their name for future use in their e-portfolios, Dreamweaver webpage and other applications- perhaps as part of a business card when they have left school ?- a long way away for these guys perhaps! The pupils originally created their names in pencil and India ink which was then scanned and then traced using Illustrator. Pupils were introduced to using the pen tool and opacity layers. Further lessons included creating compound paths, simplifying paths, and using the Bevel and Emboss 3D effect filter. Pupils who completed the basic task got the chance to play around with using some of the symbols and paint brush tools.
