Stickers are one of the easiest ways to share your brand or personal brand to others. They are becoming more popular than business cards and they are easier to make your own!

There are so many different purposes for stickers that teaching for just one would be limiting your creativity, so we are teaching the basic tools and principles to get you going and allow you to create your own unique sticker using Adobe Illustrator.

Adobe Coloring Book

Color along with us as we serve up new illustrations that you can print or finish with your favorite Adobe apps. Each week this spring, the Adobe Coloring Book will feature coloring pages created by some of our favorite artists.

The act of coloring works as a bright and beautiful stress reliever, and as kids know, it’s a lot of fun. The Adobe Coloring Book will feature new illustrations from incredible artists each week this spring—with themes like animals, outer space, and more. Whether or not you stay within the lines is up to you.

It’s only right that we start with the basics. We asked this week’s artists to be inspired by the alphabet. Keep calm and color on.

Create a TikTok Dance using Adobe Rush! Get off your feet and learn a dance to stay active (and maybe get a few laughs out of your followers).

Instead of tabling let students come to you via Instagram Story - use the Questions feature on Instagram story so students can ask you questions about Adobe. Or you can use the "yes/no" button to ask them questions so you can curate a workshop that is most appealing to your viewers.

VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS! This is a great way to break up the day and interact with your peers while practicing social distancing. You can use outlets like YouTube Stream, Instagram Live, Google Hangouts OR use Adobe Connect (below) free for 90 days! Invite people to tune in to your workshop and ask them to fill out the online Attendance Form below.

You can teach any of the Social Media topics mentioned above OR anything else you can think of, like: Resume Building, Editing Videos, Creating Logos, Branding, Intro to Graphic Design. See the Creative Cloud below for some more fun ideas!

Here are some Ambassador Resources if you need them!

Workshop Best Practices:

1. Explain what the purpose of the workshop is and why it matters

2. Create a space where students feel safe to create, connect, and contribute

3. Know your audience - use information relevant to the people you are teaching to keep them interested and engaged

4. People learn best in 20 minute increments - so teach for 20 minutes then let them get hands on and work through what you taught for 5 to 10 minutes

5. Creating a safe environment is key - make sure students feel comfortable enough to take risks and fail sometimes

Adobe Portfolio free through May 15

If you have ever wanted to start a website, blog, or want a place to display the work you have done in school for potential employers Adobe Portfolio is a great tool to utilize. Take this time to work on those projects that you may usually put off due to busy schedules.
