Getting Started with Adobe Illustrator

IllustratorIn Getting Started with Adobe Illustrator, students will learn the basics of the program including, but not limited to, becoming familiar with the work area, creating a new document, zooming and panning, working with layers, creating shapes, objects, working with type, and much more if time permits! This is a two-day instructional course that consists of follow-along application while adding your own creative flair. By the end of the class, students will understand the program's capabilities and accomplish tasks for their own personal and professional projects. The instructor is also willing to connect with individuals after the class ends to provide further guidance and mentoring.

Students should bring a laptop to class with the Adobe Illustrator software already installed. A seven-day free trial of the software is available on the Adobe website: (click on Free Trial in the top menu). A limited number of laptops will be available to use in class (students must reserve in advance).
