One of the advantages of using Adobe Illustrator to create graphics and drawings is its ability to display textures. Using the "Effects" menu when a document is set to RGB allows you to duplicate the look of chalk. You can use this chalk effect on any line or text in the program.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open a new document. Select the RGB colour option.

  2. 2

    Select a colour using the colour picker tool. Click on the paint brush or pencil tool from the "Tools" menu.

  3. 3

    Draw a shape or write text.

  4. 4

    Highlight the writing or drawing with the selection tool.

  5. 5

    Select the "Chalk" option from the "Effects" menu. This transforms your drawing into a chalk texture.
