Laura was very thorough and made sure we understood concepts before moving forward. I will take what I've learned into the workplace with me!

I like that I was able to do the exercises after Laura walked through them and, I appreciate pausing here and there to let me take notes as we went along.

Overall a great course. It went a touch slower than I would have liked but the instructor was thorough and covered everything very clearly. I would recommend it to anyone who is a beginner with Illustrator, I learned a ton and will probably take additional classes!

Reviewed by Sheri H. on 4/12/2020
I found the Intro to Adobe Illustrator course helpful and worthwhile. Laura, the instructor, was professional and knowledgeable on the subject. She was able to answer any questions I had and made learning the content easy. I enjoyed the flow of the course. I knew a few self-taught basics before this course, but Laura helped me fill in the gaps and gave me a sturdy foundation in Illustrator. I have a lot more confidence with using the software now. Thanks!
