Illustrator CC Level 2 class description

You understand the basics: shapes, the transformation tools (scaling, rotating, etc.), using text, the essentials of Live Paint and Image Trace, and maybe even a bit of Pathfinder.

In this class, go far deeper and learn how to combine paths and strategically alter them to enhance your illustrations. Learn how to shade and sculpt your artwork in precise and artistic ways. Leave with plenty of useful tips and techniques for working more efficiently in Adobe Illustrator. Make the difference between a good start and a finished piece — and improve your work output by learning the best ways to create a wide variety of graphics.
