  • “The class was great! I needed an Illustrator refresher course since I hadn't used it since college and needed it for my current job! I learned so much in 3 days. Michele was patient, thorough and fun. Great job! Looking forward to taking the Photoshop course!”

    Luis Pimentel

    Loved Noble's teaching method to learn Illustrator

  • “I was always intimidated by Adobe Illustrator and never properly learned the program. After taking the Noble Desktop class I started using it immediately in my concepts and designs. It is a valuable program to know and Michele taught the class in a simplified and easy to use manner. I highly recommend it.”

    Victoria Greiss

  • “This class was very comprehensive for three days -- I learned so much about Illustrator! The instructor was perfect: knowledgeable, attentive, and dynamic, delivering rather dry material with a sense of humor and fun. I'd recommend Noble Desktop courses to anyone.”

    Jennifer Clark

    Jennifer loved learning Illustrator from a fun, knowledgeable instructor.

  • “The Illustrator class was great. We covered a ton of material over the course of three quick days, and the material really filled in my knowledge gaps. I'm more confident now in my Illustrator skills...and what I can bring to my business and clients! Thanks Noble Desktop. :)”

    Danielle Mehta

  • “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.”

    Dorinda Balanecki

    Learned to master the Illustrator Pen Tool in just three days.

  • “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 CS products, but explained everything so clearly that I think even a straight-up beginner would be able to follow along with no problems.”
