Adobe Illustrator is designed for graphic artists, technical illustrators, and individuals who want to create their own art by combining type and graphics and drawing on the screen. The basic tools of the software will be covered, along with drawing techniques and keystroke shortcuts. Experience with Windows or Mac platform is required. Students should bring a thumb drive to the workshop to save any completed work.
