Art Meets Digital Technology

Sixth-grade students in Ms. Jacob's art class recently had a fantastic time exploring the world of digital art! Students created wonderful digital self-portrait paintings using only their Chromebooks and the Adobe Illustrator Draw app. The sixth-graders first learned some of the basics of creating digital art such as the use of layers, digital brushes, and color tools. Students then focused on creating a line drawing of their self-portrait using the Adobe Illustrator app. Once their line drawing was complete, the students used the color tools and the digital paint brushes to add color and value to their digital painting.
