Adobe Illustrator $399
An Adobe Authorized Certificate Course
This course is for those who want to create powerful vector artwork for graphic design, original art, and to take advantage of Illustrators sophisticated drawing tools, expressive natural brushes, and a host of production tools.
Taught at the Orange County Photography Center where teachers are mentors, the instruction is hands on, a learning methodology that encourages you to learn Illustrator by doing, not by watching prerecorded tutorials. You will begin with the basic concepts and then for the next three days, you will apply these and more advanced concepts to a variety of real world design projects. This project method takes you from concept to creation and thus you gain a complete understanding of design concepts and Adobe best practices for Illustrator.
The classes are small so that you can ask questions, interact with your fellow students and your instructor is by your side providing hands on help that will guide you to create award winning art and design pieces.
Successful students, who complete the class and the Metrics that Matter Survey, earn an Adobe Certificate of Achievement, which is recognized by most employers.
