### Creating Colors and Gradients

Objective
• In this lesson you will use the color palette, gradient palette, and the swatches palette to create, name and save colors and gradients
Gradient
• Gradient- is a graduated blend between colors. The gradient palette is the command center for gradients.
• Stops- are icons on both sides of the gradient palette and represent the colors that will be used.
• Midpoint- the point at which two colors meet in equal measure. (AKA the middle of the two colors)
• *As you are making changes in your gradient palette it will show on your object.
Linear or Radial Gradient
• Linear Gradient- can be positioned left to right, up and down, or on any angle.
• Radial Gradient- is a series of concentric circles. The starting color appears at the center of the gradient. The blend radiates out to the ending color. It has no angle ascribed to it.
Color Palette
• The color palette is where you move sliders to mix new colors for fills, strokes and gradients.
• You can also use the palette to adjust the other color in a filled object.
• There are threecolor modes:
• CMYK- Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black
• RGB- Red, Green and Blue
• Grayscale- 256 shades of gray, assigning the brightness value from 0 (black) to 255 (white) to each pixel.
• Once you have defined a color or gradient, save it, by dragging it into your swatches palette. You can name it by double clicking it, then typing a name in the swatch option dialog box.
First Exercise
• Create a 4” circle in the center of the art board. Create a yellow fill by clicking on yellow in the colors palette.
• Adding color to the gradient may be tricky.
• There is a black drop down arrow on the top right corner of the color palette. Each time you want to change the color of a stop you must click the arrow and choose RGB.

I want you to create a design Using the shape tool as well as the gradient palette.

• Each shape must have two different colors. Also make sure to change the positioning of the stops and midpoints for each shape.
• I also want you switching back and forth from radial to linear gradients.
• You will get a grade for this assignment.
• When you finish, save the document as “Gradient”
