MugTug Sketchpad Assignment

Click on the link: MugTug Sketchpad

1. Create 3 different works of art using the MugTug Sketchpad.  Your finished work should be visually appealing or interesting.  It should utilize the elements and principles of design.

2. Be sure to try out the many different pattern options on MugTug Sketchpad. Notice the control options at the top.  Explore the drop down menus, shape and brush adjustment menus.

You can “paint butterflies” and “draw with” 100s of different patterns. Save the works you create and post them to your blog before you leave.
