WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Class 1 - Introduction to Adobe Illustrator and Vector Shapes
During this first two-hour class, you will learn the importance of vector art as well as the foundations of Adobe Illustrator. You will be introduced to the illustration terminology, custom workspaces, different file types and software preferences. You will then start working with basic geometrical shapes such as rectangles, polygons, ellipses and more.
Class 2 - Working with Colours and Gradients
Once you start drawing illustrations, you will soon need to colourise them. This class will teach you how to use solid colours, as well as gradients both inside shapes and on their strokes. You will learn how to use swatches and colour libraries.
Class 3 - Layers and Selections in Illustrator
During this class, you will learn how to work with multiple layers in Illustrator. You will import external images and learn how to trace them, as well as using the various selection tools.
Class 4 - Pen Tool
One of Illustrator's most powerful tools, the Pen, will help you create illustrations that are difficult or impossible to create by using geometrical shapes. You will learn how to create straight and curved lines as well as combining these two types. You will be introduced to "Bezier Curves", "Paths", "Segments" and "Anchor Points".
Class 5 - Rotate, Reflect and Shape Builder Tools
In this class, you will be introduced to the concept of symmetry in Illustrator. You will start by drawing half a shape and reflect this half to create the final illustration. You will also learn how to rotate a shape precisely around a circular path, which is an invaluable technique in Illustrator. You will learn how to combine shapes with one another as well as creating complex illustrations by using the "Shape Builder" tool.
Class 6 - Clipping Masks, Compound Paths, Typography and Exporting
You will learn how to mask your artwork with a shape, as well as creating hollow illustrations. You will also be introduced to the "Type" tool in order to create text, and change its appearance in style, size and colour. During the final part of this last class, you will learn how to save your artwork as different formats including JPEGs, PNGs, PDFs and more.
