Illustrator enables you to create professional vector artwork. (What is vector? It means it can be scaled to any size, small and large!) This is a great class for those who love design and want to start creating their own projects, and small business owners who want to be able to work on their own graphics.
Illustrator 101 is for those with little or no experience in Illustrator, or those who have a basic knowledge of the program. We start with the absolute essentials! The course includes an overview of the entire program, and tutorials on the most important tools in the toolbar, with an extra emphasis on the pen tool, one of Illustrator’s most intimidating tools. You will learn the most common, basic functions of Illustrator, including how to make and manipulate objects and text, and how to make your hand-drawn artwork into vector graphics. You will also learn how to create artwork for both print and web. Homework assignments are practical and fun.
The Nicole’s Classes application is a downloadable program you install on your computer. (The link to download will be provided the day the class starts.) Learning is divided into 4 weeks and within those weeks you can learn at your own pace, anytime, anywhere. There are no set class times, though homework is due every Sunday night for instructor feedback. Students also have unlimited email access to the instructor for the duration of their course, to ask questions or get help when they’re stuck. Our classes are flexible, fit into most any schedule and we happily welcome international students!
Illustrator 101 has no prerequisite courses. Just have Illustrator installed on your computer and you’ll be ready to go! If you don’t have Illustrator yet and are unsure if it’s the right program for you, Adobe offers a free 30-day trial.
