March 14-15th

It’s finally here! A two-day introduction in-person Adobe Illustrator Graphic Design Course.

Let’s face it, if you are using Photoshop or PicMonkey to create logos, business cards, or anything that needs to be printed, you need to take this course. Adobe Illustrator, unlike Photoshop, is a vector drawing tool. What does this mean? Adobe Illustrator offers an output file in a vector format/graphic that can be resized to any size without losing any quality. For logos, this is a must. When it comes to printing, the vector format of the logo file can print out super sharp no matter the size.

This course is a two-day 6-hour course ( total 12 hours ) from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm and an hour lunch in between

In this Adobe Illustrator course, you will learn how to use Adobe Illustrator to create high-quality illustrations, logos, and other custom artwork. This is an entry-level  Illustrator class and will introduce you to the powerful Pen tool, discover how to transform existing shapes, and learn how to add color to drawn objects. You’ll also use layers to organize your artwork, and explore the options for exporting Illustrator files.
