This sound like fun.
Here are a few notes on your initial plan:
- Session 1: I think you jump a bit too soon to tracing bitmpas, which
is somewhat an advanced function (all the exercises are about tracing).
I would start more on basic objects and compositions made with basic
objects, for a better understanding on what vector graphics are. More
focus on original creations.
Okay, point taken! This all does move wayyyyy too fast.
- Session 2: maybe here is a great time for something based on tatica's
awesome tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_G0pQjfqfGM
Oh that's perfect!! I think that'd be a great project to start with.
- Session 8 and 9 are in my opinion a bit too advanced for your
audience (inner working of printing is not for everyone). Maybe instead
some graphics for use on web?
Yeh that's a good idea...!
Also, I would have liked somewhere a bit about free drawing and the
Great point. Red Hat is actually going to donate some Wacom Bamboo
tablets to the school (10 tablets, and the class is 10 students.) So
this coursework needs to take better advantage of that.
Thank you so much for the feedback!
