Class Description


What you'll learn in this illustrator class:

From logos to patterns, from packaging to type, you’ll learn a lot of what Illustrator can do. You’ll create numerous graphics throughout the course, using the standard drawing tools, the Pen tool, type, compound paths, effects, layers, masks, patterns, blends, colors, and more.

Mastering Illustrator’s vector Pen tool is not the most intuitive process, but using our drawing templates we’ll help you to master this tool. You’ll also learn ways to more easily create complex shapes out of basic shapes that are easier to draw. You’ll be able to use these techniques for any kind of graphic, whether it’s for print or web.

    Eugenio is a great teacher! Energetic, kind, patient, and an expert in the topic. I only took off a star because the rest of my classmates seemed kind of disinterested in being there, which was surprising for continuing education. So there wasn't really a sense of camaraderie, but I did get a solid foundation and introduction to Illustrator.

Question from CHRISTINE G.
I want to apply to attend however I am only able to attend if I win a grant that I applied for to pay for this course and expenses involved with travel etc. I want to save a spot in this course as I have a high chance of receiving the grant. What is the cancellation policy for this course? I am asking because if I don't win the grant, I will need to cancel. I should know in the next 6 weeks.
