Student Spotlight: Art and ASL

I took an eight-week workshop on using American Sign Language in song and dance. The first thing we learned was the alphabet. I love to draw and thought drawing a message in finger spelling would be a great way to practice. The message says, “I made some art for you.” I used Fire Alpaca, a drawing program, to create this on my computer.


Gillian is a twelve year old, the girl variety, being homeschooled in northern California. Artist and self-published author of Infection, she loves to learn new languages, especially computer ones.

  1. Very nice creation! Is Fire Alpaca something you use with a mouse or is one of the pen/tablets that connect to the computer? I have a 12yo who is interested in a pen/tablet but I haven’t purchased one yet.
