Create a Simple Flower Logo or Design Using Adobe Illustrator

Posted on Nov 5, 2015 by Alisha Crawford Last Activity on Nov 5, 2015

Although time is short had to revisit Illustrator to create my simple flower design to go along with my short lesson and  warm-up Intro to Illustrator lesson plan for grades 1-3.  All of the products used in this course are great for creative experimentation and I've really only scratched the surface in Illustrator.

Imagine a component, Draw it with Illustrator, Save it to a Flash Drive, Cut it with a Laser Cutter, Assemble the component, Use it!

Posted on Nov 1, 2015 by Andy Marks Last Activity on Nov 1, 2015

I am a M.E.S.A. adviser in Utah's Granite School District: MESA stands for Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement. This year's project is a prosthetic hand with "integrated computer science elements". The hand is to be controlled with an Arduino. In the past, other MESA advisers and their students have struggled with the "carpentry" aspects of designing and building things. I thought this year's project would be no different as I played with designing and building a hand that could be computer controlled.  I modeled the hand after my own, limiting it to an index finger and opposing thumb. The first hand I made took hours to build from three 1/2" layers of plywood, hand machined to accept a small stepper motor and to have enough room for a 16T, 32P, 5mm bore pinion gear driving a "gear finger" drawn in InkScape. The finger looks like my index finger, but at its base, where a knuckle resides, is a 48T, 32P gear. My first "gear finger" was cut b... Read More

Grade 3 & 4 Beginning Computer Curriculum

Posted on Oct 30, 2015 by Judy Durkin Last Activity on Oct 30, 2015

I have laid out every lesson that I use, video links, resource files and the pacing that I use to teach students who have never had any formal experience with computer programs. The first two months are mostly basic things like MS WORD and POWERPOINT, but then we burst into PHOTOSHOP and ILLUSTRATOR. The students gobble up the information! By the end of the year they are enthusiastic and have the basic skills to experiment and be more creative and productive with Adobe programs.

Graffiti Text That's Reusable

Posted on Oct 27, 2015 by Brian O'Dell Last Activity on Nov 12, 2015

This tutorial is an easy what to illustrate and design graffiti text that can be re-used.  This means you don't have to redesign the entire effect, just re-type the words.  Its a beginner project so experience isn't needed.  I have my students illustrate a graffiti design on a wall, street, building, train or rail cars etc.   Just an artistic fun concept that allows students creative freedom centered around a theme of music, art, sports, etc. You can determine the criteria needed and Photography teachers can give photo guidelines to incorporate standards for photos and illustration designs.  Skies the limit on this concept!
