CorelDRAW Graphics Suite Curriculum

This CorelDRAW Graphics Suite curriculum is designed to provide students with essential graphics and visual communication skills that they can use to enhance almost every aspect of their schoolwork and later apply to their careers.

Lesson 1: Getting to know the workspace and fonts/Creating a simple report cover

Students will familiarize themselves with the basics of CorelDRAW, such as creating and saving documents, using fonts, resizing, rotating and moving documents and getting help.

Lesson 6: Bitmap and vector effects

Students will learn to work with bitmap and vector effects, layers, lenses and masks, while creating a collage of images and text on a chosen topic. The exercise project will be created in CorelDRAW, but students can use the techniques they have learned in the exercises and tutorials to create an original collage in CorelDRAW, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, or a combination of the two programs. Suggested topics for discussion include the usage of collage techniques in modern marketing and advertising campaigns.

Lesson 7: Letterhead and data merge

Students will explore design and automation processes as they create a personal letterhead suite that includes mailing labels.
