Effective immediately in response to COVID-19, most Technology Training classes will be delivered online until further notice.
In advance of each session, Tech Training will provide you with a Zoom link to your class, along with any required class materials.
This course initiates the transition from hand-drawn, analog illustration to a digitally rendered project using Adobe Illustrator. Topics covered include building shapes, using the digital drawing tools, and applying color to enhance your artwork.
Along with reviewing and discussing the basic principles of drawing and elements of art, participants will work on a project from start to finish to learn the best workflow and file management.
During this course, learners will have the opportunity to:
- Practice the best workflow to create an illustration from concept to completion
- Develop strong working habits and visual problem-solving strategies through in-class exercises
- Effectively analyze and formulate feedback on their own illustration work as well as the work of their peers, through discussions and critiques
- Adobe Illustrator terminology and software capabilities
- Art elements
- Principles of illustration
- Analog to digital workflow
- File management
- An installation of Adobe Illustrator CC 2022, or a free trial license
