    Learned Motion Graphics in After Effects in a Day

  • “Highly recommended!!! If you don't know anything about the Adobe apps or if you want to master your skills, this is the right place to do so.”


    Earned a Graphic Design Certificate

  • “I absolutely loved this class! I had no Illustrator experience going in and now I feel like an Illustrator ninja. Ethan, the instructor, moved quickly enough for those of us already experienced with other Adobe products, but explained everything so clearly that I think even a straight-up beginner would be able to follow along with no problems.”

    Michelle Failing

    Learned to create graphics in our Adobe Illustrator Bootcamp

  • “I was worried coming into the class about being left behind in the instruction as design classes tend to be fast paced. The instructor, Michele, was extremely personable and patient; I especially liked the comfortable atmosphere of the classroom, and the overall flow of the class was very organized and professional. Clean presentation, great work materials.”
