To learn and demonstrate an understanding of the use of the Paintbrush and Blob Brush tools in Illustrator.
Student-Friendly Learning Target:
I can create decorative paths using brushstrokes and create filled shapes using the blob brush in Adobe Illustrator.
- Brush Tool
- Blob Tool
- Choosing a brush style
- Changing the fill color
- Creating freeform lines, shapes, and other paths
Differentiate between and correctly use the Brush and Blob Brush tools by drawing a face with the Brush tool (two eyes, a nose, a mouth and a head) on the upper left artboard, then drawing a face with the Blob Brush tool on the upper right artboard. Compare how the brushstrokes are different and pay attention to the special path-merging properties of the Blob Brush. Save your document, and we will continue working on this document tomorrow.
