$99

with Keith Conforti

Adobe Illustrator, the industry-standard vector graphics software, lets you create scalable art for everything from web and mobile graphics to logos, icons, book illustrations, product packaging, and billboards. Turn shapes and colors into logos and icons. Create typography, draw freehand, and trace and recolor graphics. Illustrator is vector-based, so your artwork stays crisp even when you scale it up to stadium size.

Instructor Keith Conforti shows you how to get started with Adobe Illustrator CC and covers the 10 things that basic users want to know how to do. If you are new to Illustrator, or looking to improve your skills, or to simply learn a few new tools, this single session class is for you. After covering ten important things, we will follow up with a question and answer session to address specific techniques you may want to learn more about executing.

Important: Students should have a working knowledge of Zoom and some prior exposure to Adobe Illustrator. While this class is targeted for novice to intermediate users, strict beginners looking for an introduction to the software will most likely not be suited to the pace of the class.
