AVatar: Drawing and Grouping
Objective: You will create a personal avatar using shapes and lines. You will demonstrate basic "arrange" functions, such as grouping, arranging, ungrouping, and rotating. You will also demonstrate using basic shortcuts such as DUPLICATE, as well as various line tool options.
Step 1: Look at the examples posted below. Think about how basic shapes were used to create the various items for the avatar. Look for similar shapes; can you duplicate, rotate, flip, GROUP, after you've created detail? The key to this assignment is learning how to work efficiently using the toolbars.
IF you do not want to do a person, feel free to do a mode of transportation, a nature item (flower, tree, bug, etc.)
Step 2: Click HERE for your tutorial. Go to your Google Classroom and access the template for your assignment.
