This unit will introduce students to the concept of drawing in Adobe Illustrator using a photo as a base. The unit will introduce/reinforce tools such as the pencil, pen, gradient, opacity, and layers.
**If you’re students have not used Illustrator, I recommend downloading my FREE Pen Tool Practice lesson and starting there first - the pen tool isn’t necessary to complete this lesson but it’s helpful.***
