Get ready to flex your vector graphics muscles with Adobe Illustrator! Whether you are a complete beginner or have been trying to learn Illustrator on your own, this class is for you. Illustrator is essential when creating unique images and graphics that require a high degree of precision and scalability—allowing an artist control of images as small as a bottle cap or as large as a billboard. Since the workflow is vector-based, curves do not pixelate as they do in other graphics applications. In this course, you'll learn all the fundamentals to create illustrations and freeform sketches as you explore how this program makes it possible to work from both sketch and photo references. You'll "learn by making" with targeted exercises and projects completed as homework. We'll also discuss saving and output options, and how Illustrator files connect to the larger world of print and digital design.
