Grade 8s have finished creating their digital characters using Adobe Illustrator’s live trace and live paint tools. Students looked at stereotypes and and how pictures can tell stories. Research was also conducted on how stereotypes are often embedded into cartoons for the portrayal and depiction of characters.
Students were assigned a font where they conducted basic research and brainstormed what their font represents. The students’ task was to create a character that personifies the font and to consider if stereotypes aided or hindered the development of their character. You can see a full breakdown of the unit here. You can view the student work below by going directly to Flickr here.
