This intensive Digital Illustration 2 day course aims to give students the fundamentals of using Adobe Illustrator for adapting and enhancing hand-drawn images as well as learning how draw from scratch digitally.
Learn from professional illustrator Melissa Doran/ Go Radiate (illustrator of Naturama, My Naturama Nature Journal). Melissa is an Adobe Certified Expert in Illustrator, has a masters in Digital Media Technology and has six years teaching experience.
Along with techniques such as how to digitise hand drawn sketches, and how to incorporate hand coloured textures, participants will learn how to set up documents, add and manipulate text, and save images for print and web formats.
Everyone’s encouraged to make the techniques their own during class time – with lots of exercises and practise time built in, and you will be provided with detailed notes to ensure you fully understand the techniques and get the most from the class.
This class is suitable for people with an interest in design who have some computer experience – you don’t have to have any previous experience with Illustrator. As well as complete beginners, it is also suitable for people who have some experience and want to expand their Illustrator toolkit and becoming more efficient in their workflow. No prior knowlege of Illustrator is assummed and everything is explained from scratch step by step. It is a unique course in that you get to practice and explore both practical and creative applications of the techniques you learn and the small class size (maximum of 5 per class) means everyone gets lots of attention and help.
