Adobe Illustrator classes and courses

Adobe Illustrator is a powerful, versatile tool for creating illus­trations for print and web.

Adobe Illustrator is a multi-purpose application for creating artwork suitable for both screen and print graphics. It is a primarily vector based program which will allow you to create detailed and scalable art for almost any use.

In graphic design, Illustrator is used to create anything from logos and business cards, to advertisements and posters. In a fashion design setting, Illustrator has become quite popular in the creation of technical drawings and renders, due to its specialised brushes and patterns. Whatever your intention, this course covers not only the Illustrator essentials, but explores a host of features that sets Illustrator apart from other vector graphic packages.

In this course you will learn the following skills:

The Basics | The Illustrator Environment | Navigation | Vector vs Bitmap | Creating New Documents | Multiple Artboards | Using Guides

Design Elements | Working with Colour | Creating & Manipulating Objects | Working with Strokes | Managing & Importing Art | Advanced Object Creation | Effects & Styles

Working With Text | Creating Type | Type Containers | The Area Type Tool | Type on a Path | Text Wrap | Creating Outlines

Cool Features | Image Trace | Live Paint | Recolor Artwork

Final Thoughts | Saving & Exporting | Repro Basics

This module has been great fun and very interesting with regards to capabilities.
