In this lesson we created simple shapes using the shape tool and the pen tool in illustrator. We coloured the fill and the stroke so that the shapes stood out on the page. Here are some in depth steps as to how I created the simple shapes:

Step 1: Firstly, we opened Adobe Illustrator.

Step 2: Once we Adobe illustrator has loaded, we created a New Document and then altered the settings.

Step 3: Once the canvas has been created, we selected the pen tool and created some lines by clicking once and moving the cursor across the screen to another position and clicking once again to finish the line.

Step 4: After that, we changed the fill and the stroke colour of the line.

Step 5: We repeated this process for the square and another polygonal shape.
