This class is filmed in Illustrator CS6. It is ideal for CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, and Cloud.
Welcome to Illustrator Basics Course 1! In this class, I’ll walk you through the basics of this incredible program! Illustrator is the ultimate tool to build and design your own products, templates, cards, and more while streamlining your creative process.
INSPIRE YOURSELF… to do more. If you are ready to start creating FOR YOURSELF, then Illustrator is the program for you. This class is set up to help you get comfortable in a graphic designer’s favorite tool. You’ll be surprised at how much you will be able to accomplish after this introductory course!
This class is packed with step-by-step lessons, design theory, practical applications, and digital goodies that put me right there beside you as you get started. These techniques are EXACTLY THE SAME ONES I taught to college students in their introductory graphic design classes. You do NOT need to know how to draw to use Illustrator. Learn how to use the drawing tools, learn some introductory design vocabulary and make way for the path to creativity.
MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE
I used to teach this course in four lessons over a longer length of time. I was compelled to take that class and turn it into a five-lesson super-course. This class highlights the most important and most used features of Illustrator. Because of this, Illustrator Basics 1 is the prerequisite for my design courses.
This course includes five lessons. Lessons are 25-30 minutes long everyday. In addition to the normal lessons, there are 3 bonus lessons. Lessons are taught via video and class notes. Videos are broken into 10-15 minute segments to help you watch and practice the lessons in manageable portions.
