Learn how to create shapes and use the Pen tool to draw vector graphics. In no time at all you’ll be able to control the Pen tool, draw straight lines and curves, use colors, layers, brushes, trace images, and more!
This 6-hour class will quickly get you started with the essentials. It’s for people who use Illustrator lightly and only have 1 day (or 2 nights) to spare. If you want to learn Illustrator in greater depth, you should check out our 18-hour Adobe Illustrator Bootcamp.
Mastering the Pen tool has always eluded me, and Michele showed me the basics in a way that I can practice and build on this vital Illustrator skill.
After using Illustrator for over 15 years I now understand how to use the pen tool more efficiently and will be able to do my job faster! Fabulous class.
I would definitely recommend this class!
Great course! Step-by-step instruction and great practice materials finally made illustrator easy for me.
Whether you are a total beginner or need a refresh and are short on time, I highly recommend Illustrator in a day. It's given me the confidence boost to move towards more challenging classes and to tackle some projects.
Eugenio was an awesome teacher. He demonstrated the capabilities of Adobe Illustrator beautifully while making it relevant and impactful for every individual. He is amazing at troubleshooting within the program, which shows how well he knows and understands its functions. I'd love to take another class with him.
The teacher was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The class was very interesting and learned a lot of new things that will help me in my next job.
I learned what I came here to learn. The exercises were great for walking us through skills. Sneha was amazing. She's very thorough and excellent at explaining the reasons behind what we're doing. There wasn't a problem she couldn't solve. She also created a wonderful learning environment and made me feel comfortable.
