Adobe Illustator Beginner Training--all the essentials you need to get started!

Adobe Illustrator is available for Windows or Mac OS and is a solid vector editing and drawing program for creating media that is scalable across many forms of media. This live, online, instructor-led Adobe Illustrator beginner training course is two days and is designed for the new Illustrator user. Learn how to create artwork for illustrations, logos, stationary, page layouts, posters and more! This class is fully interactive, as you will be able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other students as you work in real time to complete activities within the software. 

Note: While not a requirement, some students find it helpful to attend this class using two computer monitors. This will allow for one screen to always display the instructor's screen, and the other for you to use as you follow along with the instructor.

Where is this class held?

This is a live, online class led by a field expert; and just like an in-person class, it is fully interactive and engaging. The difference between an online and onsite class? No travel! You can participate from anywhere in the world with an Internet connection. Many of our students choose to stay home from work on these training days, some never even changing out of their slippers! Where applicable, students are able to speak with and hear from the instructor and other participants throughout the course as they work in real-time to complete activities.

Need something a little more personal?
