Illustrator can offer something for any designer or design enthusiast. From working on logos and branding ideas to illustrating artwork, working with websites of different types and design, it is an excellent design tool.
Starting from the very beginning can be daunting: our Illustrator for Beginners class aims to teach the basics, through tutorials, mini projects, and giving top tips to help you get to grips with how it works. It will benefit your design work and spark your imagination. You will leave with the confidence to use a large number of tools in Illustrator as well as the interest and skills to go ahead and learn more.
We will look at the very basics of Illustrator and how to get started by grasping the introduction to vectors user Interface and document setup. After that it’s all about getting to know the tools and pallets, selecting paths, shape tools, and pencil, as well as all kinds of strokes tools.
Checking skills after the first lesson and then moving on to more advanced functions with the pencil tool, starting to work with type, layers, grouping and the pathfinder tools.
Continue touching the advanced features like guides, making patterns and brushes, gradients and getting a feel for expanding, clipping masks and compound paths. To wrap your project correctly we will learn image trace, art boards, and how to properly export and save.
In the final session participants can bring ideas for their own project and get help and inspiration kickstarting it off in Illustrator.
