Great Plains Summit: July 16th to 17th, 2020
2022 Great Plains Summit

From Artist to Graphic Design with Google Drawings

Session Description

This session will go beyond the basics of Google Drawings and we will dive into teaching Graphic Design skills in the classroom. Creating Logos, Stickers and their own artwork allows students to become creators instead of consumers. We look at how students can begin a course toward what a graphic designer creates and how in a digital world creating their own work is needed. You will walk out of this session with your business card template, email signature, Google Classroom Banner, Google Forms Banner, Personal Avatar, and all this will be done in Google Drawings!
