Lesson Plan: Intro to Color Composition in Illustrator

Tonight in my Intro to Design and Digital Media class:

1. Find an image with a color story that inspires/provokes/interests you.
2. Use the eye dropper tool and rectangle tools to create a palette of color swatches based on the image.
3. Use Illustrator to create your own abstract composition using the color swatches from Step 2.
