Adobe / Illustrator
Aaron Boucher, Field Colony
Saturdays / 6:00pm - 7:45pm
In this workshop, you’ll see how Adobe Illustrator gives you the power to design, draw, and color images quickly and easily. Each workshop contains an assignment that challenges both your creativity and your growing skills with the program. The workshop is designed to let you work at your own level whether you’re just getting started with illustrator or looking to refresh your skills.
From drawing objects with the shape tools to mastering the all-important pen tool to working with shape gradients, you’ll gain the techniques you need to produce stunning vector graphics. You’ll learn to apply and work with color, create shading effects and painterly brushstrokes, and add special effects such as 3D to your drawings that will set your work apart. You can also easily move designs between Photoshop and Illustrator to take advantage of the strengths of both programs.
Recommended: The workshop will be presented live and projected in HD but having a laptop with Adobe Illustrator installed and following along will provide the most comprehensive understanding of the program. Adobe offers a free 30-day trial which can be downloaded at https://www.adobe.com/products/illustrator/free-trial-download.html
