Illustrator Tools

Providing a variety of graphic organizers, Internet resources, and classroom web site tutorials, Computer Graphics students will demonstrate their ability to utilize a variety of basic tools and effects within Adobe Illustrator.  Student works will highlight each of the effects and filters by applying them to the star shape tool. Analyzing works by Wassily Kandinsky, students will compose a design that integrates the different distortions together in an abstract way.

 

Use the following guide to create a composition of 50 or more abstract shapes created using the Effects Tools in Adobe Illustrator. Be sure to apply and combine several effects together on each shape, and adjust the Transparency settings to show the evidence of shapes beneath it.

He is a Russian abstract painter, and also did work as an art theorist, and was credited with being the first artist to create the first purely abstract piece of art. He played a key part in the art movement, around 1910, which liberated painting from representational services. He is known as a pioneer in the abstract movement, with several loyal fans and art lovers, praising his work as a painter, and as an abstract creator of timeless pieces.1
