  • Adobe Illustrator Tutorial (Private Training)

    Anonymous review on 3/6/2024
    I recently had the opportunity to take a private Adobe Illustrator class, and it was an incredibly beneficial experience. The personalized nature of the session allowed me to focus on developing fundamental skills at my own pace. Under the guidance of a skilled instructor, I delved into the basic tools and functionalities of Adobe Illustrator, which was particularly helpful as a beginner. The instructor's clear explanations and thorough coverage of essential tools provided a solid foundation for me to build upon. By the end of the session, I felt more confident navigating the software and creating simple illustrations. Overall, the private class served as an effective starting point for my journey into the world of digital design.

    Linda, my instructor, was great! Very patient, flexible, and extremely competent in the material. Linda is very knowledgeable in the Adobe space and always went above and beyond to explain tougher concepts. She also was always readily available outside of class to answer questions as I was working towards finishing my portfolio or working on "homework" assignments.

    I found the Intro to Adobe Illustrator course helpful and worthwhile. Laura, the instructor, was professional and knowledgeable on the subject. She was able to answer any questions I had and made learning the content easy. I enjoyed the flow of the course. I knew a few self-taught basics before this course, but Laura helped me fill in the gaps and gave me a sturdy foundation in Illustrator. I have a lot more confidence with using the software now. Thanks!

Discover the Best Illustrator Classes in Washington, D.C.

Adobe Illustrator has been regarded as a vital tool in the graphic design industry since it was first released in 1987. Vector format is key in graphic design, allowing users to create graphics that can be expanded infinitely, as opposed to raster-based graphics which can only be blown up as fair as their pixels allow. It produces outstanding results for logos, icons, typography, and other complex illustrations. 

Whether you are curious about graphic design or looking to make a career out of it, you won’t get far without learning Illustrator. Not only is Illustrator best for designing web pages or an app, it is the leading software for creating custom fonts, patterns, infographics, and other forms of custom art. Once you learn it, you’ll love it.
