Learn how to draw and edit illustrations to use in creative projects for fun and for an audience.
In this course, students will learn about the ways in which images are used to tell stories. Already familiar with picture books, they will use this knowledge as a springboard to analyze how different elements of a picture convey meaning. They will then learn how to use different online drawing programs to create digital illustrations for specific purposes. As a final step, they will plan a story they want to tell and use a collection of original digital illustrations to tell their story.
