OPTION  FOR TEACHERS - USE  THE SILHOUTTE CAMEO TO CUT CAR BODY DESIGNS

Now sketch by hand or use PowerPoint to create 2 ideas for what your car body graphic design could look like and add these ideas to your Portfolio.

You have 2 options for how to do this

  1. Print out 2 copies of the car body parts template and then hand sketch your ideas. Take photos and then paste into your #EtharaAtHome Portfolio
  2. Create your design ideas using PowerPoint itself. Take screenshots of the ideas and paste into your #EtharaAtHome portfolio

You can download the Simple Car Body PowerPoint template at the link below.

Now you have chosen your Car body design, its time to draw it up properly on the Microsoft PowerPoint #EtharaAtHome Car body template. Once you have completed the design in PowerPoint, print out onto A4 size paper. Paper Card is best if you can get it. Next, use scissors to carefully cut out each of the parts, then follow the instructions in the #EtharaAtHome Car Makers Guide to assemble and join to the Car Chassis you made in Unit 1. Get a someone at home to take some photos of you doing this work so you can record in your portfolio later.
