Everyone else is doing it, so why not you? Come learn how to create vector artwork to design your own t-shirt. This workshop will cover the basics of Illustrator.

At the end of this class, participants will be able to:

  • creating standard and organic shapes,
  • applying special effects,
  • drawing for the un-artistic,
  • working with type,
  • making it 3-D,
  • blending and more.

This workshop project will be focused ideally for digitally printed T-shirts not screenprinted t-shirts. Adobe Illustrator is used to create high quality illustrations, logos, and other custom artwork. This is the entry-level of our Illustrator classes, and introduces you to the powerful Pen tool, discover how to transform existing shapes, and learn how to add color to drawn objects.
