Our Adobe Illustrator 1 course introduces you to the techniques used to create art, typography and graphic design within this industry-standard software. Start by exploring the basics of the program, including how to open, close, name and save documents. Then study the best ways to plan artwork and work with templates. Learn to work with the extensive tool options to draw paths, rectangles and ovals; to move, copy and transform; to select objects for modification; and to correct mistakes. Explore how you would incorporate existing artwork, scanned images and typography. This Illustrator course also looks at how you can use the software in combination with other applications.
Course Delivery Method:
This is normally an in-class course but will be offered temporarily online via Blackboard Learn while college buildings are closed. Session recordings will also be available for students to re-watch.
You must have completed our COMP 9591 Introduction to Adobe Creative Cloud course. (An approved equivalent is also acceptable.)
You will have the most success in this course if you already have drawing and design experience before you start this course.
