Illustrator Tutorials (individual)
 

Students will download the zip folder and then use the .ai files to practice what they have just learned.

The assignment 'Vector Portrait' will be created using the pen tool. Students must be very familiar on how to use this tool.

This is your chance to become a master with the pen tool. If you have any difficulties, please raise your hand and Mrs. Blouin will help you with any further assistance.
