Adobe Illustrator CC Level 1
May 15 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm$350
Course Duration, Method: 1 day (8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.), Instructor Led Training
This course focuses on Adobe Illustrator CC, which is used to create “drawn” graphics, while enabling its users to integrate content from other domains (such as photo-oriented graphics and animation, which belong to Adobe Photoshop and other applications). With Illustrator’s many easily used tools, you will discover that not only can you unlock the same creative impulses you’ve always had as you’ve picked up a pencil to sketch out an idea, but also capture those multiple ideas and “what ifs” during the creative process in ways that you never imagined. And for those of you who are just embarking on building your creative skills, you will be surprised at “how good” your work will appear, even at the outset of your exploration of the world of graphic design.Read More
