Pi Posters in Adobe Illustrator

On March 14, our Math Department celebrated Pi Day. My 8th grade Digital Design class students created posters in Adobe Illustrator.

Watch a video with my students' posters on the TeacherTube.

Quick Tip -- the Pen Tool in Adobe Illustrator

I would like to show you how to create a Pi symbol in Illustrator.

Select the Pen Tool.

Set the Fill color and the Stroke color to None.

Click the Pen Tool twice to create a straight line.

To create a curved line, click and drag the Pen Tool.

An outline of Pi is ready.

Now, fill the outline with a radial gradient. I am finishing a video tutorial and will post it soon.
